The process of designing is as follows:

  • Analyze the music and understand the emotion.
  • Word those emotions to further translate it into architectural space.
  • It could be any type of structure or installation
  • Be able to encompass a volume that depicts your understanding of the emotion in the music.

“I’ve seen miracles happen with sound.”

– Tom Kenyon

  • Music: vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion..

“To hear a sound is to see a space.”

– Louis I Kahn.
