Architecture sounding like music

5. 4. – 26. 5. 2013
The exhibition is organized by GVUO and the Cabinet of Architecture within the ARCHIKULTURA 2013 festival.

Music and architecture belong to related fields. There are a number of common rules for both. The principles of composition are similar, terms such as rhythm, rhyme, overture, coda, counterpoint, staccato or legato have the same meaning and use. The application of musical terms in architecture must be approximated. We interpret rhythm as a building model, dividing the whole into regular and repetitive spaces. Rhyme occurs when not exactly the same elements are repeated. Overture opens an architectural composition or urban composition and may be a gateway. Coda is the end, the exit, the last chance to stop before saying goodbye. Architecture can be briskly "played" by small elements such as staccato, or sail in legacy in elongated and soft forms.

The exhibition is a collection of collages that bring together 40 objects from around the world dedicated to music. It clearly provides different approaches to the topic of important creators and architectural teams, such as Frank Gehry, Bernard Tschumi, Massimiliano Fuksas, Coop Himmelb (l) au, OMA, UN Studio, Daniel Libeskind, Renzo Piano, Rafael Moneo and others. The exhibition also includes models by Eva Jiřičná and Jan Kaplický. The Czech premiere of the exhibition is a modest contribution and perhaps an inspiration to the recurring discussions about the establishment of a separate seat for the Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra in Ostrava.
