Acoustics Design of the Music Suite in Taipei National University of Arts
This paper reported the design progress of the music suite in Taipei National University of Arts. The 7,000-m3 concert hall was designed for orchestra performances and the occupied reverberation time (RT) was set to 1.7 s. A diffused and high ceiling was used to prevent from over-powering. The stage was restricted to 155 m2 to provide good support and balance. Tests in 1/20 model yielded an early support (ST1) of iV13.1 dB at the solo location. The 1,450-m3 orchestra rehearsal room was designed to provide both adequate reverberation and strength of co-players. This was achieved by implementing concentrated diffusers on a splayed ceiling or an array of overhead diffusers above the floor.
