Pink Floyd, "considered to be one of the icons of revolutionary, progressive music," was adept at using "sonic experiments and philosophical lyrics to cross social boundaries and redefine values." The international design competition A House for Pink Floyd similarly aimed to translate that philosophy into a built architecture, the focus of which being on "creating any object of architecture that transcends rules and standardization and innovates through itself." 

With no constraints to site, program or size Arqbauraum's entry, "based on man meeting with himself, and doing so through the senses," aims to "return to man a place for him to pulse with the world, a space that appealed to solidarity and to the strength of the use of words."
