AURAL ARCHITECTURE
Can Music guide your design?

Archiol | Artuminate Competitions

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION
SOUND TO SPACE -
Using the sense of sound to design architectural space, depicting emotions and humanising the habitable volume encompassed by walls. Use your auditory sense to develop abstract architectural space which exhibits an emotion of itself.


The process of designing is as follows:
• Listen to the music pieces.
• Select any one of the four music pieces.
• 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


We expect:
Design an abstract architectural space influenced by sound.


Keywords: Aural, Music, Architectural Space
• Aural: relating to ear or sense of hearing.
• Music: vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion..
• Architectural Space: Space expresses something invisible and intangible to the design in terms of shape, colours & material.

“To hear a sound is to see a space.”
– Louis I Kahn.
