More InformationShow full item record
Music is an innate human quality that provokes physical, mental, and spiritual responses both consciously and subconsciously, and consequently, has the capacity to change the environment. Architecture can be designed as a vehicle for creating acoustically rich environments and musical opportunities that are desirable for guests and promote social exchange and healing. Architecture can be specifically designed to acoustically tune and direct sound in particular fashions that promote social, physiological, and cultural well being. The Performing Arts & Healing Center challenges conventional perceptions of what “instrument” and “music” are by creating spaces that can be healing and invigorating through the embodied composition of select materials,shapes, and landscaping. The symphony of nature. Further, a variety of interactive musical mediums encourage guests to tangibly engage with music rather than simply stand as observers. The result is a constant stream of activity transforming the Center into an instrument for positive cultural change.
