Abstract:
The interior acoustics has nowadays strong impact at the architectural design of public use buildings. Among them, churches seem to be especially important, due to their religious, spiritual and cultural role in the society and overall importance in life of individuals. Moreover, in a present-day religious communication and celebration ‘the statement’, thus speech, seems to weigh over the chant and organ pipe music. Such approach has substantial influence on contemporary design of churches, introducing significant transformations in altar and ‘audience’ solutions. Moreover architects allow themselves to propose original and highly individual, symbolic forms for this type of building. Therefore, this article was devoted to presentation of studies outcome on changes in links between architectural acoustics and spatial development of sacral projects. Research were based in European tradition, so mainly on Catholic Roman solutions, however in the text there can be found references to other denominations. Also taken into account were influences of changes in ceremonial aspect. Case studies on contemporary solutions contain several interesting examples.
