Connect with music

a music therapy centre

Music therapy is a form of therapy that utilises the potential of music in order to give its clients a better life quality. Usually it is performed in leftover spaces designed for other functions. This master’s thesis has been an investigation of what potential a building specifically dedicated to music therapy could have.

This thesis aims to answer the following questions:

How can architecture adapt to and enhance the functions of music therapy in order to form a new typology for a music therapy centre?

What elements in architecture can give users a way to express themselves in relation to music therapy?

The material is divided into the following pages:

1. Introduction

2. Background

3. Concept

4. Context

5. Design proposal

6. Reflection
