Zaha Hadid & Grimshaw Architects, wrapped softly….

From time to time I hold a mirror and try to reflect  the contemporary architectural reality, for you to judge,

I must  confess…. it makes it more interesting when it comes to famous architects….

Here is another interesting example of “Conscious inspiration

-

Zaha Hadid is certainly one of the most influential architects working today.

Does Zaha Hadid implement intuitively the “Conscious Inspiration Method” to design unique structures?

Garibaldi Exhibition Building

Milan Italy Competition won: 2006

From Grimshaw’s architects cite  about Garibaldi Exhibition Building:

This functional core is then loosely wrapped, as though draped with fabric, in a metal skin that follows the shape of the site, creating something of an urban sculpture. At piazza level, the building is transparent.

“Conscious Inspiration” the ultimate inspiration methodology

 “Knowledge”:  as many said, and wrote before – Knowledge is the foundation for all designing processWe architects and designers are obliged to be informed about everything that was designed in the past and on a daily basis….

“Tools”:  develop tools to analyze buildings and “Understand” them,  tools that will cope with the abundance of architectural information

“Invention”:  with the methodology of “conscious Inspiration” we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our tools, it will lead us to high quality and creative architecture
