This week on Burning Down the House Curtis discusses a topic dear to the heart of New Yorkers yet usually not taught much in architecture school: acoustics. Curtis discusses which frequencies carry and which don't, plus what you can do in your apartment to dull the throbbing bass or dragging feet of your upstairs or downstairs neighbor. Nat the Engineer also stops by with some helpful hints about soundwaves, frequencies, and the bassiest song he knows.
