Inspired by two music pieces, Kaija Saariaho’s Laterna Magica and Morton Feldman’s Rothko Chapel, this project translates music as an intangible matter to represent time with different durations. The rhythm and tempo in the music are translated into lines in the space. Using different densities and line weights to stretch or compress time, the project generates textures, materials, light, openings, shadows, structure, tectonics, space, and mass in the architectural experience of the concert hall.
