architecture + music
this week, we tackle the idea of music + architecture, a subject that hearkens back to a famous quote by goethe "i call architecture frozen music" (1829). a couple of decades before, friederich von schelling wrote:"architecture is music in space. as it were, a frozen music." (1803) in a publication, philosophie der kunst. david byrne's 16 minute TED talk is quite insightful. i recommend it.
