Design Proposal of an Opera House based on the Theory of Subjective Preference
Yoichi Ando and Hiroyuki Sakai

In the opera house, there are two different kinds of sound sources, i.e., the vocal source on the stage with a relatively short value of (te)min, and the orchestra music in the pit with a long value of ( te)min. For these two quite different source signals, a proposal of designing an opera house using an acoustically transparent floor is made here.

Key words: theory of subjective preference, temporal design for two different source signals, acoustically transparent floor
