Architecture and Jazz Music are related in many ways.

Architecture like Jazz has traditional forms, is a creative process, culturally influenced, has harmony, melody, rhythm, texture, dynamics, mood and tempo.

Allen Architectural Engineering attempts to establish a procedure for design and a set of principals for composition.  These principals address harmony, melody, rhythm and reflective mood while engaging the senses...We attempt to avoid "Style"..Where each project has an unique finger print.  Please see my talk on Architecture/Jazz/Hip Hop as Revolutionary Ideas.
