SANAA , “the Generating Plan”, “Conscious Inspiration” 2

Soon After I published my last post about SANAA’s inspiration sources, I came across the ground plan of The Dover Castle in England (founded in the 12th century).

It seems that  SANAA’s Inspiration Sources for the Glass Pavilion, is Dover’s Castle ground plan.

But in a opposite way….

The walls that hold the building in the Dover’s Castle become the “Spaces in between” in SANAA’s Glass Pavilion.

What did I learn from this post?

SANAA   gave an innovative interpretation to the Dover Castle ground plan, in the” Glass Pavilion” .

SANAA’s Architects knew the Dover’s Castle ground plan, or other castles with similar patterns.

They had the relevant architectural Knowledge. 

Knowledge is the foundation for all designing process.

“We architects and designers are obliged to be informed about everything that was designed in the past and on a daily basis”
