 MVRDV – Inspirational Architecture Firm

The Conscious Inspiration Methode:

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 process. We 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.

  1. Yes! Finally something about tool develops.

    it lacks a little bit of genealogy. The folding architecture starts with Claude Parent’s Oblique Function, then became trendy after Koolhaas’s experimentation on the Jussieu Library Competition. Then it was stupiedly copied by MVRDV, Diller Scoffidio and all fashionable architects. Nouvel, the student of Claude Parent , and himself designer of oblique architecture in the 1970’s ( Competition for Beaubourg, Villa in South of France …) just went back to his sources ….
