Let’s see how the “Conscious Inspiration Method   works for this building….

“But first, Let’s learn a few things about “Conscious Inspiration

The designing method I call “Conscious Inspiration” is a process formed from three main phases:  “knowledge”, DesigningTools = “Codex Rules” and  “Invention

Knowledge :as many said, and wrote before, 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….

Designing Tools”=“Codex Rules”: develop tools to analyze buildings and “Understand” them, Tools that will help us 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

“Knowledge”

Note the dominant morphological of this building

Big Horizontal prisms placed over each other perpendicularly.

It is noticeable for the observer…. most likely , A-lab‘s “sources of inspiration”  are Herzog de Meuron’s Vitra Haus Showroom and OMA’s  residential project in Singapor,shown in the next images

….Note the morphological resemblance….Big Horizontal prisms, placed over each other, in rotation, creating a stable structure

,The  “Conscious Inspiration Method‘  is about bringing something of your self , A-lab Architects  , morphologically get inspired from  Herzog de Meuron’s  Vitra Haus Showroom and OMA’s residential project in Singapore

….but they add their own  invention

The dramatic flying prisms, placed in rotation, create a Lack of equilibrium that transmits a dynamic sensation of a building in motion

A “small talk” about “Conscious inspiration”

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.

Be inspired consciously from existing buildings, and you will experience a unique design process that will serve your creative desires….

But first we must develop our TOOLS” or in other words, our” Codex rules”…. 

In my previous posts I published numerous “Design Strategies” = “TOOLS” ”= “Codex rules”, of talent and well known architects

You are invited to visit my previous posts and learn more about  ”Codex rules” of leading architects like Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, Morphosis and others….
