  • “Musicians’ House. Four musicians will live here every year, one in each quadrant. Occasionally, they will meet in the center space and make music together, under the triangular opening to the sky. Music and mathematics and architecture. Rarely has geometry been considered so seriously in architecture, or taken to such poetic lengths. Clarity is not a conclusion, but the threshold to a mystery that is archaic and prophetic, belonging at once to the first questions ever asked, and the last ones that ever can be asked. An epic cycle of time is evoked here, and it both exhilarates and threatens.” 1 Raimund Abraham believed that architecture could dictated the way that a person behaves in a space. To make this point he would argue that the way a person inhabits a loft space like the ones used by artists in New York City is radically different with the way a person inhabits an apartment that has already been section and divided programmatically with spaces such a living room, dinning room, etc. Raimund Abraham’s Musikerhaus is a masterful exercise on combining function and program to create meaning through architecture.
