LEED AP, Director, Architectural Acoustics Group, Principal Consultant
Ben Markham is a Principal Consultant and the Director of the Architectural Acoustics Group at Acentech. As an acoustician, he has gathered a deep well of experience in the design and renovation of performing arts facilities at higher education institutions. He has an avid interest in acoustical models and 3DListening projects (predictive computer simulations of acoustic environments). Ben’s wide spectrum of projects at colleges and universities around the globe has given him a broad perspective on the needs of spaces that support both performance and pedagogy – for those on and off the stage. Some of his notable projects include the Paramount Theater at Emerson College in Boston, the thrust-stage Teaching Theater at the University of Southern Indiana, and Farkas Hall (formerly the Hasty Pudding Theater) at Harvard University. In addition to his consulting work, Ben is a visiting lecturer in the School of Architecture at MIT, at the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, and at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. He has also lectured at Northeastern University, Roger Williams University, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Syracuse University, and he sits on the board of the Princeton Triangle Club, an undergraduate theater troupe.
