maibritt_350px.jpgSounds have always been important to me and when I graduated from the Danish gymnasium I chose to study French – because of the music of the language. Phonetics became my favourite subject! After a job as an English/German teacher in France, I continued to study – this time ancient Greek. The ancient constructions now had my attention and the minimal structures of the Parthenon still give me the chills! Today I feel that I combine my passion for sounds and construction working with room acoustics - even though my Master’s Degree never predicted a future in engineering.

Since 2007 room acoustics have been a big part of my life and working first with room acoustics in education facilities in Denmark and then healthcare facilities globally – made me understand that we are not there yet and that is why I go to work every day.

All around the world patients and staff are affected by sound and bad acoustics. Office workers are struggling with concentration work because of uncontrolled sound propagation, and education facilities are sometimes not appropriate for their purpose. It seems unnecessary in a world where we can manage sound in so many brilliant and sustainable ways.
