Zohreh Gholami, Morteza Seddigh
Music is the expression of state in the form of sounds and architecture is the expression of state in the form of objects and dimensions, both of which have a long history as much as human life. These two transcendental arts influence human body and spirit from different aspects. In the present study, the linkage between music and architecture has been studied using the descriptive-analytical method. The data were collected by field study, library study and a researcher-made questionnaires. The questionnaires were filled up by 393 elites and experts in music in Golestan Province, Iran. The data were analyzed using the SPSS software and the nonparametric binomial test. The results show that the establishment of the music center can be effective in promotion of the Persian traditional music. Also, according to the music elites, it is possible to design and establish a music center in combination with Persian traditional music by applying the approach of climate-responsive architecture and considering cultural factors.
