Abstract

In this study, acoustical performance of Mimar Kemaleddin Hall in wGazi University, Rectorate Building has been analyzed. The acoustic analysis of the hall has been performed by using a simulation program called ECOTECT v. 5.20 and the results were developed by means of statistical reverberation times and geometrical acoustic analysis. The existing base model of the Hall was modified by using acoustic panels and various finishing materials. By comparing the results of 7 modified models, suggestions were developed depends on main function of hall for speech or for music.
