In simple terms, architecture and music are two very different things, which is the product of one set of materials in the form of one building and the other product is a set of sounds in the form of a song and melody. In this sense, architecture and music are two separate issues that are not similar. But with a little care in the hidden layer of music and architecture we can find amazing similarities. Finding the structural, quantitative and qualitative similarities between architecture and music is the focus of this article. Achieving a qualitative and quantitative correlation between these two arts can be a way to aesthetically improve architecture and achieve its healing principles. Therefore, the main purpose of this study is the understanding of the immediate beauty of music in mind and the application of its aesthetic elements in architecture. The research method is descriptive-analytical study of library documents and case studies. In this article, first, the definitions and the general structure of music and architecture are presented, then the results of the studies are introduced in the form of qualitative and quantitative adaptive tables. Finally, by analyzing data, the common structure of music and architecture is determined.
