When searching in google the expression “walls with holes” it refers to numerous technical solutions for holes and cracks in walls

When architects talk about “walls with holes” they mean walls with Windows”.

 

It is quite a while that I trace the inspiration source to SANAA‘s

Zollverein School of Management & Design in Essen

Recently i found a Lucien Hervé’s : Photograph  That gives us a unique angle at the Unité d’Habitation Rezé in Nantes .  A project that was designed by Le Corbusier in the fifties.

SANNA’s Zollverein School of Management & Design in Essen with its unusual way of opening holes (windows) in its walls has an impressive presence in the Web.  You are invited to enter a previous post of mine, where I present some buildings that are inspired by SANNA’s “holes effect”

Is the original and unexpected solution of Corbusier, to the social Housing Unité d ‘Habitation  Rezéin   in Nantes  is “ the source” of inspiration to SANNA’s  Zollverein School of Management & Design?
