Adaptation of a Large Exhibition Hall as a Concert Hall Using Simulation and Measurement Tools
Due to the growing demand of multifunctional performing spaces, there is a strong interest in the adaptation of non-dedicated spaces to host musical performances. This leads to new challenges for the acousticians with new design constraints and very tight time frames. This paper shows a practical example of the adaptation of the “Sala della Piazza” of the “Palacongressi” of Rimini. Thanks to the combined use of prediction and measurement tools it has been possible to design the acoustical treatments with a high degree of accuracy, reaching all targets and at the same time respecting the tight deadlines.
