Kurdistan Museum, Full acoustics design

Situated at the base of the ancient Citadel, in the center of Erbil, Iraq, the 150,000 square-foot museum will feature exhibition spaces for both permanent and temporary exhibitions, a lecture theatre, state-of-the-art multimedia educational resources, an extensive digital archive of Kurdish historical assets, as well as community center and landscaped outdoor spaces for public use. HSD (Haley Sharpe Design) appointed LC Acoustics as their sub-consultant for the Acoustic and Electroacoustic design development.

LC Acoustics scope included full acoustic design, electroacoustic design, sound transmission control, vibration isolation design, out-to-in noise transmission control, and privacy management.

A unique architecture with crisscross connections between exhibits and acoustic zones presented complex challenges to achieve privacy and prevention of sound bleeding between exhibits. LC Acoustics used directional loudspeakers as well as custom designed scatters / diffusers to manage the sound bleeding concerns.

Custom designed partition assemblies were developed to achieve optimized isolation between adjacency and maintain highest possible privacy levels.
