Description


A good acoustic design will provide a better and comfortable environment in the mosque in term of sound audibility and speech intelligibility. Unfortunately, architects nowadays often focus more on designing a building based on its looks or form, and the main function of space most often neglected. The research has taken place at Masjid Al-Hussain Kuala Perlis. The research approach includes interviews and observations guided by the theory of affordance employed. Although the acoustic design was not that perfect, the acoustic design is still acceptable. There is a correlation between the acoustic designs of the mosque and the worshipers’ comfort.
