How Architecture is Similar to Music

Contrary to what many people might assume, there can be a significant amount of overlap between music and architecture. Both art forms involve the creation of dynamic compositions that affect the senses and elicit certain emotions in their audience. Likewise, both music and architecture rely on balance, proportion, and detail in order to produce satisfying results. Indeed, if one looks closely at the design principles behind both art forms, they will find that they are actually quite similar. Whether we are talking about symphonic compositions or grand cathedrals, music and architecture both rely on unity and careful construction in order to draw in their audience and evoke deep emotional responses. Ultimately, then, it is clear that when it comes to their aesthetic power and impact on our senses, music and architecture are truly kindred spirits.

I studied architecture in college and currently practice professionally, but I also manage a few other ventures. I love cats - I have two of them, and they're the best! I also enjoy keeping a saltwater fish tank.
