Special acoustical treatments are used throughout the NYTC. At the Hall of Memory theater, where films depict appalling instances of intolerance in our world, Shen Milsom & Wilke specified acoustic tile for the ceiling and special finishes for the seats and floors to keep the films’ drama within the hall. The half-height glass walls are specially sealed to keep noise levels outside to a minimum.
An 80-seat theater above the NYTC entry hall required special isolation from all of the adjacent spaces, including ceiling acoustical treatments and acoustical panels on side and rear walls. These measures contain the theater’s sophisticated sound system and keep noise from from leaking into the theater from the surrounding displays.
