Just unbelievable….

On a regular basis I introduced in this blog, a variety of “Conscious Inspiration” examples.

This time,  I came across the ultimate example of the “Conscious inspiration building”……

or maybe not….

For you to judge….

The next building undoubtedly is an honorary member in the privileges group of the “Shifted buildings”

 Saraiva & Associados Arquitectura Urbanismo

 proposal  for the Two Towers project

competition in China 2011

The  Saraiva & Associados Arquitectura Urbanismo’s  proposal  for the Two Towers project  has a Typology that is  identified  with the “Shifted Buildings Trend

For more information and a lot of examples for the ” Shifted Buildings” see my next sketch , and visit my previous post “Typology of Shifted Buildings  – “Conscious Inspiration

from  eliinbar’s sketchbook 2010  SANAA and the  “Shifted Buildings Trend”

A calculate guess …. Like most of the Shifted buildings

Probably Saraiva & Associados Arquitectura Urbanismo  are inspired by the SANAA’s very familiar Museum of Contemporary Art, in New York ….shown in the next image.

Now lets See the next clip….this is a clip representing

 Saraiva & Associados Arquitectura Urbanismo’s  design strategies….

Does It seems familiar? ….Did you recognize the architect’s design strategies?

Well… Saraiva & Associados Arquitectura Urbanismo’s  design strategies, look  in the video clip exactly like  BIG’s Augmented reality design strategy

For more information about BIG’s “Augmented reality design strategy” (emphasizing the building’s morphology planning given the weather conditionslooks at the viewtraffic systems, etc.) see  my next sketch, and visit my previous post “Bjarke Ingels Group – BIG….how they do it?”

A warm recommendation…. Locate presentations showing  BIG’s “Augmented reality design strategy”  in YouTube

Here is one I like ….

What did I learn from this post?

Architects have varied inspiration Sources ….

The first type of inspiration is basic and common ….I call it the “Visual Inspiration” Easy to identify, and characterized by architectural trends.  (Like the “Shifted buildings” trend)

The second type of inspiration is based on research…. I call it the “Design Strategy Inspiration”. It requires knowledge and analytical skills. (Like BIG’s architects “Augmented reality design strategy”)

Recently, colleagues encouraged me to publish a “very small book”, With a collection of common planning strategies, explained through my sketches….

What do you think about it?
