like what Danny stated... the core of understanding architecture in relation to music to review the root and elements that forms architecture and element that make a music...
Music has characteristics same as in architecture...Music is a way of understnding and visualizing certain aspects by way of a sound through our ears where we understand what the music would like to impart on us and its meaning without even seeing or toudhing it..."we only feel"...Architecture is also the same in the sense that even we are not oriented on as what the building would deliver to as and as to what its meaning and concept or spatial organization but we understand it even though we wont hear it but we can see it and can tell the diff.
MUSIC we hear and understand without prior on touching and seeing
ARCHITECTURE we see and touch it and undertsood as it is and its meaning without prior of hearing it ....

MUSIC beat, harmonics, tone , rhythm, (stanzas, verse, chorus, refrain,adlib,outro,intro,etc..."falls in the category "TRANSITION")

ARCHITECTURE structural rhythm, harmony and unity of the building, materials and surrounding, hierarchy and transition of spaces.....

"to understand music you mmust listen and feel likewise in architecture you look and understand to feel...
