Here is a very short video that my youngest son photographed, my daughter edited and the eldest son chose the background music, documenting , the preparation process of a sketch.

They called it “ Sketch is born

Note that you see the video from the viewpoint of my eyes, How did they do it?

This post is about “Conscious Inspiration”

In the next images and sketches I will try to demonstrate how the “Conscious inspiration Method” works for the building designed by Atelier Thomas Pucher and Bramberger [architects]in Tartu, Estonia.

1. Le Corbusier’s  “Domino House”…. a Conscious Inspiration Source

Domino House (1914–1915) is an open floor plan structures, supported by reinforced concrete columns meaning that the floor space was free to be configured into rooms without concern for supporting walls and the physical The building envelope expression is an independent expression subject to the interpretation of Its Architect.

What did I learn From This post?

1. Once more we saw that the “Conscious Inspiration Method” is practiced intuitively by talented architects all over the world.

2. It Seems that the “Conscious Inspiration Method” does not prejudice the creativity of architects….Perhaps even enhances It.

3. The “Conscious Inspiration Method” is not limited to a certain place, cultural or environmental conditions.

4. Inspiration Sources are varied…. architects are inspired from different periods and different places.

5. An inspiration source can be a “design strategy” or a “unique morphology”, What really matters, is the architect skills to develop and make use of his appropriate “design-tools”.

The  “Conscious Inspiration” Method,  How it Works?

First step:  the inspiration Source.

Second step:   Developing  the Conscious Inspiration tools.

Third step:   Realize the design idea.

-

A “small talk” about “Conscious inspiration”

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.

Be inspired consciously from existing buildings, and you will experience a unique design process that will serve your creative desires….

But first we must develop our “TOOLS” or in other words, our” Codex rules”…. 

-

-

In my previous posts I published numerous “Design Strategies” = “TOOLS” ”= “Codex rules”, of talent and well known architects

You are invited to visit my previous posts and learn more about  ”Codex rules” of leading architects like Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, Morphosis and others….

Once we develop our “TOOLS”=”Codex rules”, it will lead us to high quality and creative architecture.

The abundance of information in the Web affects us all, as I illustrate in my posts.

I Believe that designing is a process formed from three main phases:  knowledge, tools and invention.

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…

(I intend to demonstrate some of my ideas in future posts)

“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.

Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Morphosis….The dominant representatives of The new age of Architectural Envelopes

What is a building envelope? 

The building envelope is the physical separator between the interior and the exterior.

It was not always been like that…. 

It was Le Corbusier that helped us liberate the envelope from the internal structure with his “Dominos houses”.

-

Domino House (1914–1915) is an open floor plan structures , supported by reinforced concrete columns meaning that the floor space was free to be configured into rooms without concern for supporting walls and the physical expression of the building envelope, is subject to the interpretation of Its Architect.

 This is an old sketch of mine, showing contemporary expressions to Le Corbusier’s “Dominos houses”.

-

Since  Le Corbusier…. architects made number of measures for total separation between the building envelope and its internal structure.

-

-

In this post I will show three leading architects taking advantage of the evolution that accorded in building envelopes,

Each one of them expresses in his building ,his own -“Envelopes Design Strategy”

What did I learn from Frank Gehry’s -“Envelopes Design Strategy”? 

Gehry is very aware to the “needs” of the building,like once said Le Corbusier “a house is a machine for living”. 

He designs buildings with effective floor plans 

He does not give up his desire for creativity and uniqueness.

Gehry develops his “Envelopes Design Strategy and uses his architect skills to realize his architectural vision…”sculptural buildings”

So Morphosis ”floor plan  strategy” is now clear….  

1. Simple cube-shaped building with an Interior core designed by the principles of the “sponge concept” (you are invited to sea my post about Steven Holl’s “sponge concept”).

2. And a sculptural façade created by a steel screen fluctuates in its offset from the cube. (You are invited to sea my post about the three dimensional “Mashrabiya Envelopes” and some other of my relevant posts listed at the end).

-

-

I think we can summarize this post with the following statement:

“The most dominant characteristic of contemporary architecture, is liberating the envelope from its internal building
