Here was me about to prepare a mini-tutorial on rhythm in architecture, and I stumble across this perfectly written explanation of the why and the how of it all in this perfectly written explanation. We all know what rhythm does for in music (“I got rhythm…. Who could ask for anything more”), well …
“We experience architecture [too] with all our senses in both time and space. So, in architecture, rhythm can be seen not only in the surface patterns and decoration, but [also] in the pace of interior spatial progressions….”
I heartily recommend this wonderful piece on rhythm in architecture, with examples from all the right people, from Louis Sullivan to Frank Lloyd Wright to Bruce Goff.
