Frank Gehry’s and Zaha Hadid’s “Victorian inspiration”
From Eliinbar”s Sketchbook,2012, Frank Gehry’s & Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources
This post Traces Zaha Hadid’s “Conscious inspiration” design Methodology, that eventually engenders a unique and winning design such as the Riverside Museum in Glasgow Scotland.
Zaha Hadid’s planning process Shown in this post is based on my own understanding (for you to judge)…. my Intention is to introduce Zaha Hadid’s strategy implementing the “conscious inspiration method”
Zaha Hadid’s starts her design process by connecting to Accessible information sources “she is informed about everything that was designed in the past and on a daily basis”
This is a St Silas church in Glasgow
It’s style building is known as Victorian
Notice the Repetitive theme of the triangular gable
And this is the Riverside Museum’s front entrance designed by Zaha Hadid in Glasgow. She gives an innovative interpretation to the repetitive Victorian gable.

And this is an Aerial view of Zaha Hadid’s Riverside Museum in Glasgow
Note the linear and continuous configuration of the building roof
in the two images
This is an image of the departures board in Glasgow’s Central railway station sealing.
Notice the configuration of the extruded triangular-shaped roof
And this is an inner image of the Zaha Hadid’s Riverside Museum sealing in Glasgow. Notice the configuration of the extruded triangular-shaped roof
And finally as I mentioned more than once” we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings”
This is the Image of the Dundee Maggie’s Centre in Scotland, designed by Frank Gehry, opened its doors in 2003
Notice the variable repetitive theme of the triangular gable.
Who knows…. maybe this recognized building in Dundee shown in the following picture, is the inspiration source for Gehry’s Maggie’s Centre .
Note the initial visual characteristics of the two buildings.
Triangular pediment and vertical tower next to It…..

“Conscious Inspiration” the ultimate inspiration methodology
“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…
“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
