Abstract

The rich history of South Memphis neighborhoods—a community best known for its musical heritage—has been diminished due to social and economic issues. This has resulted in a missing link within the community. This thesis seeks to understand the relationship between music and architecture by exploring and expressing cultural heritage through music and inclusive community engagement. The goal is to preserve the character and promote the growth of the neighborhood with music as the driving force. This project will provide a place for music creation and collaboration using concepts derived from organizational patterns found in music. The research supporting this thesis stems from studies done by various architects, such as Frank Gehry and Michael Ford, and their influences of music and experience of time, space, and the importance of context and culture.
