Rem Koolhaas and the “Conscious Inspiration” issue….

from Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012  Rem Koolhaas’s and the “Conscious Inspiration” issue

Recently I found a Rem Koolhaas twitt  (16 Feb 09) related to the questions I raise in this blog….

Rem Koolhaas twitt: “Influence is a very unpleasant subject and I deal with it in a maybe irresponsible way, which is to really ignore it.”

Well….  Rem Koolhaas is no doubt one of the influential architects in our  time….

We learned in this blog that the notions “inspiration” and “copy- past”, In other words “Influence”…. are very delicate issues, we are obliged to recognize them and develop techniques to deal with them….

Probably you encountered in my blog ,  the Conscious Inspiration Method

A method that is aware of today availability of information…. and develop tools to help us architects and designers deal with it.

We don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired (influence) from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our tools, it will lead us to high quality and creative architecture.

The next image, is the Shenzhen Stock Exchange building in Shenzhen,China .Rem Koolhaas ( OMA) won a competition to design it in 2006, today the Shenzhen Stock Exchange is under construction.

China. 2006,   published in Dezeen, Under  construction.

I can sagest some “Influencing’ buildings that
may be , are the inspiration sources for Rem Koolhaas.  

For you to Judge….

El Lissitzky’s proposed horizontal skyscraper 1923–1925

Tiblissi  Geórgia 1975

And for  desert….

What do you think about this building designed by Coop Himmelb(l)au  in Shenzhen, China ,  bublished in Dezeen in 2009?

Note that the Rem Koolhaas’s Shenzhen Stock Exchange  is on its left….
