The architectonic idea in Hanslik is Nature. Nature, for Hansik, is a supplier of elements that transform into music; these elements ranging from sounds to people to equipment to make sounds from. There are several arts, conceiving of things that do not exist in nature, but are rather inspired by them. Nature functions to supply models to art, while the function of art is to exemplify nature.
