Ms Deepti Pandey Rana

Abstract


Musical terms such as rhythm, texture, harmony, proportion and articulation refer both to architecture and to music. Rhythm in music is patterns of sounds in relation to a beat; repetition of elements - openings, shapes, structural bays- establish regular or irregular rhythm in architecture. Musical texture refers to layers of sounds and rhythms produced by different instruments. Architectural texture appears in different materials. Harmony is balance of sound or composition and balance of parts together. Proportion is relationship between parts; in music it is distance between notes or intervals. Dynamics is the quality of action in music or in a building’s facade or mass. The comparison between architecture & music will reveal that, the architectural design process has the same components & elements, which are consisting Designer, User,and Architectural work. If we recognize the literal meaning of architecture, we will find that, the same emotion case as in music- affect a person who uses his talents to translate this emotion producing sketches or creating 3D models.
