The “Architectonics of Music” is an ongoing inquiry into the intersections between music and architecture — encouraging their rhymes and resonances to serve as springboards for new vocabularies and forms for architecture. It was initiated in the studio of Steven Holl at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

Both music and architecture are inherently spatial and space-defining. The native condition of music is inhabiting space through time — in the words of John Cage, “like a house to dwell in". “Architectonics of Music” mines the ideas and disciplines of both fields to promote and distill the individuation of vocabulary and language from which the essence of music or architecture may renew itself to facilitate new visions.

This discussion will be illustrated through student work and built projects by Steven Holl Architects, including Maggie’s Centre Barts (London, 2017), the Lewis Center for the Arts (Princeton, 2017), and the Daeyang Gallery and House (Seoul, 2012).
