Here is a good report (in PDF format)for your to start on,covering from the basics to managing sound. It is written by the World Health Organization and published by Stockholm University et al: http://www.wilful.com.ar/Comnoise%202000.pdf
Check out these images of the Chicago Auditorium Building designed by Adler and Sullivan, which has always been rumored to have perfect acoustics. I once saw a Joe Walsh Concert there, sat in the upper most part of the balcony and as a witness to the sound quality, I would testify on the rumor to be true with unbelievably CLEAR Sound!!!
Check out this web site for Architecture and Acoustics from the University of Sydney, which features lots of links to research on this topic at:
Good luck and let us know what else you find out about this almost impossible but required design topic for architects to get their arms around.
