The Architecture of Music
Site: Market Place/Sturdee Street/Hobson Street
This project is the result of an exploration into the architecture of music and its mood altering capabilities. Through an extensive analysis of Beethoven's 8th sonata, the Pathétique, I was able to extract the key elements of each theme and attempt an analogue in architectural form. The result is a unique architectural experience for each individual. This building attempts to capture the imagination of each visitor, just as Beethoven's music does to his listeners.
