Eliel Saarinen & Conscious Inspiration

During the research I’m doing the last few days in pursuit after Zaha Hadid’s inspiration sources. (Zaha Hadid & Plastelina Architeccture)

I ran into the last building designed by Eliel Saarinen 

What do you think,  the churches designed by Sir Frederick Gibberd and Oscar Niemeyer are his inspiration sources?

    its easy to criticize works of architects and saying its been done before is like spitting on his or her hardwork.The person coming up with these “built”comparisons should try making a building themselves and see what they undergo.inspiration isnt unique it is omnious it could appear identical to any person anywhere in this world.Architects struggle to make a living too designing buildings.If such allegations re made mocking any architects work,it must be done to them directly with informing the concerned persons office;not backstabbing them putting up such posts on facebook.
