Inspiration,inspiration;Inspiration …. West and East… Are there anonymous mutual relations between them ,which we do not know about ?

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 –  The mutual inspirational relations between west and east

My inspiration for this post are Simona Rota’s photographs, published in WALLPAPER on “Soviet Modernism”. Unknown Stories”!!

Thank you  Simona….

From Simona Rota’s introduction to her photographs published in WALLPAPER, I learned that the Soviet modern architecture of the second half of the 20th century has remained practically unknown to date. 

Come and join me to a short journey uncovering the mutual inspirational relations, between the “Soviet Modernism” architecture, built in the second half of the 20th century and western architecture, built in the last two decades,

At this point, I do not understand how these mutual inspirational relations were created….

First , I will focus on the west getting inspired from the “Soviet Modernism”…. 

In my next post I will show how the “Soviet Modernism” is getting inspired from “Western Architecture” ….

The  “Conscious Inspiration Method‘ ,  How it Works?

First step:  the inspiration Source.

Second step:   Developing  the Conscious Inspiration tools.

Third step:   Realize the design idea.

 

The five “HOWS” of the “Conscious Inspiration Method”

The ultimate inspiration methodology:

1. How to filter out relevant Knowledge from the Web with abundance of information?

2. How to develop your own Vision?

3. How to choose the right “Inspiration Sources” that empowers your Vision?

4. How to develop your personal Design tools?

5. How to use your Inspiration Sources as the “Planning Process Generator”, and design high quality and creative architecture?

“Conscious Inspiration” is practicing and acquiring tools to improve observation and differentiation of details.

The abundance of information in the Web affects us all, as I illustrate in my posts.

I Believe that designing is a process formed from three main phases:  knowledge, tools and invention.

Knowledge”:  as many said, and wrote before – Knowledge is the foundation for all designing processWe 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…

(I intend to demonstrate some of my ideas in future posts)

“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.
