Eye candy but acoustical nightmare 2: glassy architecture

glassy architecture look good but can be very noisy
Glassy architecture are all the rage in design. They look fabulous but can be very noisy.

Love the look of glassy architecture?  Sleek, modern, clean, sexy.  Glass doors, ceiling-to-floor windows, sliding glass doors connect the indoor space to the outdoors and to nature.  But it also exposes us to unwanted noise. If your home is located in urban environments, it is hard for a serene-looking place like this to actually BE serene.  Most likely, traffic and activity noise from the community will invade these spaces.
