Acoustical Heritage in Hagia Irene

Saint Irene, Byzantine church was modelled as part of the CAHRISMA project (Conservation of the Acoustical Heritage by the Revival and Identification of the Sinan’s Mosques Acoustics). Hagia Irene has an approximate volume of 39000 m3 and reverberation time of 4.3 sec (1000 Hz).

Measurements were simulated in 33 source-receiver pairs – here we are having a look around the room.
