Modeling the Transmissive Ceiling Canopy

The project team was commissioned to construct a detailed computational model of the EMPAC concert hall ceiling canopy design as specified by acoustician Kirkegaard Associates. Both the acousticians and campus officials determined that a study should be performed using auralization techniques to both aurally verify the feasibility of the design and to select a proper fabric material for the canopy.
