Goethe said that “architecture is frozen music.” Making a building is much like creating music. Being an Architect is much like being the conductor of the symphony. In music there are all different types of instruments to coordinate and bring into tune together. It’s my job to orchestrate all those pieces and pull them together until they sing. When I design I push and pull the building until I feel all the harmonies and melodies come into perfect pitch. It’s like listening to the Symphony tune up before the concert. At first the dissonance is the most powerful sound and slowly it slips into harmony together.
Every building has an underlying structural rhythm. Pushing and pulling that structural gait, sometimes accentuating the rigidity of the rhythm and other times intentionally bucking that rhythm is my way of making beautiful music.
