Sound, number,proportion, geometry and rhythm in music, together with implications for architectural design thinking and practice.
This reasearch area proposes an investigation of parallel conditions in architecture and music - particularly the conceptualisation and composition of time, duration, rhythm and timbre. By defauly, time is foundational to music and sace to architecture. Nevertheless, music provokes spatiality and architecture engages temporality in fundamental ways. There is then the potential to investigate measure, number and proportion -in tonality, modality and harmony for music and in ambiance, geometry and proportion for architecture.
