About Competition

The challenge “Musician’s Haven” of this competition is to create a home cum studio space for the musician who would not just provide a refuge but also act as a place for composition and creation of it.

And as magical as this journey of music and musicians seems. Equally magical is the journey of the creation of an abode for them. And that is exactly the challenge of this competition.

And just the way there are different aspects that are needed for the creation of music. Creating an architectural refuge for the musician also needs a wide scope of understanding and artistic eye.

This challenge is to create a space that not only helps in creating a comfortable environment for the musician but also a space that is fabricated or designed especially for music.

Creating a symphony between music and architecture. As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said it well in this quote:

“Architecture is frozen music”


  • Understanding the Musician: Understanding the musician, their workspaces, and decode their minds to create a client brief.
  • Relation between Music and spaces: Research and understand how spaces are created for any musical purpose. Basic understanding and concepts regarding the same can help in formulating the type, size, shape of the spaces.
  • Materials: Study the kind of materials used especially for sound-related spaces. From Sound absorptive and reflective materials to other materials that help create a music-friendly space.
  • Construction methodology: With changing use of materials there is a change in the methods of their construction. Starting from the scale of buildings to their size, openings puncture that the building can have.
