16: Architecture as a Translation of Music

Elizabeth Martin

Pamphlet Architecture 17 draws closely on the work of composer John Cage, with whom the author corresponded at length, and her study brings together ten projects by musicians and architects that explore the language, philosophy and character of both disciplines. Contains analytical drawings, diagrams, and models of the translation of minimalist music theory into built form. Case studies include buildings by architects Bernhard Leitner, Ellen Fullman, Maryanne Amacher, Neil Denari, Steven Holl, and Mangurian + Ray.
