‎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.
