dc.description.abstractThis thesis seeks to explore how geometry, music, and architecture can all interweave with each other. Music is based on the harmonic ratios of geometry. These relationships can also be used to inform the geometries of architecture. As with the aesthetics of music, architecture, too, is not an exact science that must follow rigid geometric rules. A work of music is made more beautiful when it smartly breaks the rules of order and gracefully bends the rules of harmony. Similarly, architecture can bend and break the rules. This is an academic exploration of creating a building form that starts with the rigid set of rules of harmonic geometry, but bends and breaks them by passing them through a filter of perspective to derive a new set of rules.en_US
