I concluded that Art, Music, and Architecture's relation is one where three equals have influence on one another. I began describing this by drawing a circle and calling it the arts program. I divided that circle into the three divisions. UMA students were asked to imagine that the school had funds for a new building to house its three art programs.
Examples of influence: The repeating patterns found in Music can be visually pleasing in Art and Architecture as well. The creativity of Art can inspire Architecture and Music. Guidelines limiting Architecture lead to great works of Architecture; sometimes, limits in material, or instruments can lead to great works of Art or Music.
Site Plan This site plan shows the whole building. Each wing is shown in more detail on the following pages.
Architecture Wing Like reality, the architecture wing's first floor tiles express the influence radiating from Art, and Music Within the field where the building is located, sits a small pond surrounded with trees and large rocks. That pond made the perfect center for the architecture wing
Art Wing Assuming the art created by students is intended for public display, I centered the Art wing around the most public space in the building- the main entrance.
Music Wing The music wing, with little help from me, set itself up for the over all building plan. To make a good auditorium, seats had to arch around a stage. This perfectly allowed the stage to be the center of the art wing.
