The 2017 Student Design Competition sponsored by the Acoustical Society of America’s Technical Committee on Architectural Acoustics and the National Council of Acoustical Consultants, in conjunction with the Newman Student Award Fund, will be displayed and judged at the 173rd meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Boston, Massachusetts, June 25-29, 2017. The project involves the design of a multi-purpose facility with auditorium and rehearsal room at a small university located in a densely populated urban setting. This year the competition allows posters to include a digital code (e.g. a QR code) for the inclusion of supplementary material. Teams must register by May 1, 2017, and final entries that are not hand-delivered at the conference must be received by June 19, 2017.
