The aim of the study is to facilitate the rhythmic management of shape by understanding the basics of the sonorous rhythm. The method used is based on an examplification using musical instruments, audio tools and a specific/ intuitive rhythmical semiography. This theoretical part is applied in the discipline called “The study of form”, conducted at the Faculty of Architecture in Timisoara, in the 2nd year of the bachelor programme using an exercise entitled rhytmical volumetric frieze. The method and results are presented in the illustrative part of the paper. Understanding musical rhythm is a fertile base for those working in the field of architecture, design and visual arts in general. The formal diversity obtained exhibites the polyrhythmics and the variation specific to musical rhythm, contrary to monorhythm and isorhythm.
