    One of the projects I am involved with has taken an empty warehouse and convert it into a space to test out 3 large classrooms and a corridor ... and one of the sponsors (Echofon) suggested that instead of using all their acoustic kit to make the whole hall perfect we should do a 1/3 with good audio dampening, 1/3 with moderate and 1/3 with none, to allow schools to see the difference it can make and why it is worth investing in.

    A wonderful idea and shows the importance of acoustics.
