If the Great Ballcourt was designed as "primarily a ceremonial space that served as a monumental effigy of a ballcourt*" which scenario is more likely?

1) The acoustic character that enables communication, in a normal voice,
from end temple to end temple and from the temples to those inside
the "playing" area was, like St.Paul's Cathedral, accidental

or

2) "Undoubtedly we must consider this feat of acoustics as another
noteworthy achievement of engineering realized millenniums ago by
the Maya technicians"
"Chi Cheen Itza" Manuel Cirerol Sansores 1947 "
