summary The acoustical measurements or calculation results create comprehension difficulties for the architects. In order to give the architects the means to appreciate and evaluate the acoustical results and as a consequence facilitates the collaboration between acousticians and architects, these results must be “translated” and presented in a comprehensible and architectural way. This will also permit the architects to have a help base during the architectural conception and finally create a common language of evaluation of the acoustical results. This paper presents the acoustical simulation results with a graphical method of comparison of the obtained results with the optimal acoustical results taking into account different architectural elements as the volume of the model, the type and the configuration of the spectacle, the optimal acoustical rate, etc. This graphical comparison of the “architectural translation of the acoustical results” concerns all the possible configurations of one or more objective criteria of an adjusted number of architectural models in relation to the optimal acoustical rates.
