Science in the City
Architecture and Music (Clip)
Date: July 13, 2011
Running Time: 00:05:30

Other Viewing Options
   QuickTime 800K  
Goerte once described architecture as "frozen music," observing their common foundation in mathematics, geometry, and aesthetics. But what is the sound of a skyscraper? A warehouse? A bridge? Here we explore the connections between architecture and music, juxtaposing San Francisco buildings with musical compositions influenced by architecture. This experimental segment of Science in the City asks more questions than it answers.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
