ARCHITECTURE IS FROZEN MUSIC

Music always exists complimenting other art forms. Never can you find music stand alone.On the surface, music and architecture are opposites. While music is invisible, architecture is visible. And while music is made from vibrating air, architecture is made from concrete, steel, and glass.                  But look a little closer you will find, music and architecture are surprisingly similar.

In fact, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the famous poet once said that “Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music.”

In reality, both music and architecture are a perfect combination of art and science. Just like an inspiring song, a building design involves flowing lines, unexpected turns, and a solid, pleasing structure. Both disciplines are built around recurring patterns that evoke a sense of order and excitement.

Like the large, bright windows in a hallway, a song’s lyrics can conjure vivid and stunning imagery. Or like the swirling medley, a grand staircase can rise magnificently into the sky. Music and architecture are sisters. And each one can influence the other.
