This video looks at the structural design of the O2 building in Dublin. This is a built music venue with a capacity of 14,000 people, designed to provide unrestricted views and excellent acoustics. The film shows the exciting role of acoustic engineers and explains how they developed criteria from the customer’s brief. Key areas considered included reverberation, sound absorption and insulation before building an acoustic model to test the suitability of different materials.
