Zaha hadid and Le Corbusier ….Playing musical chairs….


From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Zaha hadid and Le Corbusier Playing musical chairs

Le Corbusier wrote in his book “Towards an Architecture” in 1923 : ”Architecture is not making any Longer simple shapes

 

Twenty seven years later Le Corbusier designed Notre Dame du Haut chapel. A Floor plan that is characterized by complex shapes ….a style identified today with Zaha Hadid’s Architecture…..

France 1950-54

And this is a  Zaha hadid’s  typical floor plan … Note the morphological similarity to le Corbusier’s Notre Dame du Haut chapel floor plan.

From Eliinbar’s sketch book 2012-Zaha hadid & Le Corbusier  morphological similarity = “Conscious Inspiration”

Forty years later Zaha hadid designs the Aquatics Centre for 2012 Summer Olympics  in London

Notice the Aquatics Centre’s roof …It is supported by concrete columns that make it appear to float above the rest of the space

And this is the roof designed by Le Corbusier for the Notre Dame du Haut chapel

Notice the structural design of the roof was inspired by the engineering of airfoils.

“Epilog”:

Zaha Hadid’s Aquatics Centre roof…. under construction

Notice the Aquatics Centre’s roof …It is supported by concrete columns that make it appear to float above the rest of the space.

Villa Adriana  was the Source of  inspiration for le corbusier,when he designed  the RonChamp Chapel  in 1950.

And the next image, are le Corbusier’s sketches from Villa Adriana

Probably Zaha Hadid’s inspiration source for the Aquatics Centre for 2012 Summer Olympics London , is  Le Corbusier’s RonChamp ,Chapel roof.

Each generation and its inspiration sources

The principle is the same…. talented architects of all times are not intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.

Here are two relevant examples ,of talented architects that are inspired from Le Corbusier’s RonChamp Chapel – roof. … For you to judge

The next image is Louis Kahn’s  First Unitarian Church  roof designed and built  1959-1969,  inspired from Le corbusier’s  Ron Champ Chapel .
