Optimum Form for Acoustics: A study of the relationship between office designs and noise

Supervisors: Dr. Raid Hanna, Sally Stewart

Farrah is a PhD research student at the GSA. She completed both her Bachelor and Masters in Architectural Studies at the GSA.

Her research focuses on acoustics within the office environment. Acoustics in the built environment remains an undermined and under-developed field which paradoxically affects the human health in a more detrimental way than carbon dioxide. It is intended that this research creates awareness of noise and its impact in the work place and that the end result be used as reference for the designs of future workplaces.

She has acquired working experience in both large and small architectural firms in the UK and Ireland over the past years. Her interests lie in public realm design, investigation of human behaviour within built environment, sustainability and art.
