This paper lists the essential design features that should be incorporated into a broadcast studio, and illustrates the manner in which certain European broadcasting houses have expressed these design features architecturally. The paper is comprised of five principal parts: I. Introduction; II. Design Criteria; III. Studio Shaping; IV. Control of Reverberation Time and Diffusion; and, V. Reduction of Transmitted Sound. Included in the text are curves of preferred reverberation times for studios, preferred reverberation time versus frequency characteristics, and means for providing necessary diffusion and absorption of the sound in a room.
