    • Accept my apologies for the late response
      I was glad to learn from the examples you sent….

      Last year I presented in my blog numerous examples
      which demonstrate that inspiration sources of talented architects
      are actually built buildings. (I would rather not call it “style” or “copy- paste”)

      Currently I am developing a new method to teach architecture.
      I Name it the “conscious Inspiration Method”
      If interested…. for more info, feel free to enter my blog

      I’d love to know what you think

  2. Is there any way we could exchange personal contacts, say email. I would really like to hear more about this new method of yours!!

    • Would love to share with you my ideas and thoughts
      about the ”Conscious Inspiration” method

      Can you Share With me your professional background?
