The Museum of African Diaspora, San Francisco, CA

Architect: The Freelon Group, Durham, NC

This multiple-award-winning cultural immersion museum occupies three floors of the St. Regis Museum Tower located in the Yerba Buena district of San Francisco. Using modern media technologies, MoAD creates an interactive way to share stories and cultural collections from other museums, institutes, universities, and even citizens. Charles M. Salter Associates provided acoustical and audiovisual recommendations for the infrastructure, concepts, and designs of the exhibits. Acoustical input was also provided for a conference center and videoconference system. Our firm's services included sound isolation, room acoustics, HVAC noise reduction, and vibration control.
