Royal Albert Hall, London

The acoustics of the Royal Albert Hall used to suffer badly from an unfortunate echo caused by the cove of its ceiling.

Following acoustic tests carried out in the late 1960s, the recommendation to tackle the problem was to hang fibreglass acoustic diffusers (fondly nicknamed ‘mushrooms’) from the auditorium ceiling.

They look so beautiful that no one would realize they are acoustic diffusers 🙂
