✏Architectural Acoustics Illustrated Book Summary : Unite the science of sound and the principles of design toenhance any space Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates thequantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphiclanguage of architecture. This highly-visual guide includes over350 illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the bestdesign practices for limiting or mitigating noise in buildings byusing the latest in materials and techniques. Each chapter includesa summary checklist of design guidelines to help prevent mistakesand oversights, and the Instructor's website offers videoanimations demonstrating acoustical concepts. Designed as a "firstlook" at the interaction of sound and space, the book explains theprinciples of architectural acoustics and their practicalapplications, providing a comprehensive guide for designing withacoustics in mind. Architectural acoustics is more than just concert halls –it may determine building placement, division of interior space,exterior construction, and even siting. When addressed early in thedesign process, the resulting space can be free of unwanted soundand promote good hearing; if left unaddressed, the problems withthe space can lead to lawsuits and costly post-constructionremediation. Architectural Acoustics Illustrated helpsdesigners solve most acoustical problems in advance, by enablingreaders to: Understand the physical science underlying the behavior ofsound Consider the interactions of sound and space in the initialdesign approach Mitigate building sounds such as those produced by HVAC andplumbing with early design planning Design spaces for listening, and incorporate acoustics bestpractices into every plan The highly visual format of the book helps readers grasp complexconcepts quickly, and thorough discussion of each concept'sreal-world application ties the science directly into the designprocess. All design professionals need to have a fundamentalunderstanding of acoustics, and Architectural AcousticsIllustrated is a comprehensive, practical guide in aneasy-to-read format.

📒The Silo Effect ✍ Gillian Tett

✏The Silo Effect Book Summary : Award-winning journalist Gillian Tett “applies her anthropologist’s lens to the problem of why so many organizations still suffer from a failure to communicate. It’s a profound idea, richly analyzed” (The Wall Street Journal), about how our tendency to create functional departments—silos—hinders our work. The Silo Effect asks a basic question: why do humans working in modern institutions collectively act in ways that sometimes seem stupid? Why do normally clever people fail to see risks and opportunities that later seem blindingly obvious? Why, as Daniel Kahnemann, the psychologist put it, are we sometimes so “blind to our own blindness”? Gillian Tett, “a first-rate journalist and a good storyteller” (The New York Times), answers these questions by plumbing her background as an anthropologist and her experience reporting on the financial crisis in 2008. In The Silo Effect, she shares eight different tales of the silo syndrome, spanning Bloomberg’s City Hall in New York, the Bank of England in London, Cleveland Clinic hospital in Ohio, UBS bank in Switzerland, Facebook in San Francisco, Sony in Tokyo, the BlueMountain hedge fund, and the Chicago police. Some of these narratives illustrate how foolishly people can behave when they are mastered by silos. Others, however, show how institutions and individuals can master their silos instead. “Highly intelligent, enjoyable, and enlivened by a string of vivid case studies….The Silo Effect is also genuinely important, because Tett’s prescription for curing the pathological silo-isation of business and government is refreshingly unorthodox and, in my view, convincing” (Financial Times). This is “an enjoyable call to action for better integration within organizations” (Publishers Weekly).
