Does architecture influence pop music's development?

David Byrne, musician, writer, and lead singer for the seminal rock/pop band Talking Heads, seems to think so. He puts forth a great argument for it here in his talk at a TED convention in Long Beach, CA.

I don't talk much about design and design philosophy here, as I know there are plenty of other blogs and websites that take up those discussions. However, I think it's good to remember occasionally that the spaces we make really do affect people and the ways they change our culture and lives in general. Remember that everything you do affects how people function and move and even think each day--it's why I decided to do what I do for a living.
