Description/Abstract

School of Crafting Instruments: Hudson Yard in Manhattan, New York, NY

"In my thesis approach to the music and architecture, I am not evoking the classical Pythagoras and Palladio. I am more dealing with architecture and music as new ground of present architecture and new hybrid medium between them...

Architecture, just linked music with simple arithmetic ratios, should confront and try to parallel to contemporary music theory...

To hybrid these different media, I have chosen the instruments and Bella Bartok's musical Theory. Instrument has architectonic form with musical character while Bartok's musical theory has visual character. These two media can be sources of the hybrid music and architecture."
