Inspiration from existing buildings = Conscious Inspiration….”If You’re Gonna Do It, Do It Right”

Todays  post presents for the eighth time, my “Conscious Inspiration” project…. 100 Conscious projects in 200 days

100projects in 200 days that we can easily identify their Inspiration sources

These projects are published in ARCHDAILY ,the world’s most visited architecture website

The inspiration sources for the 100 projects ,are not nature in full bloom ,or wonderful music, not exciting prose

Their inspiration sources are ,existing buildings

Existing  buildings , that we are exposed to in countless websites, design brochures and  books ,everybody  is talking about this phenomenon these days , it is  called The availability of information

This is Steven Holl’s Sliced Porosity Block project In  Chengdu, Sichuan ,China 2007-2012

Notice  Steven Holl’s  scale strategy 

The irregular shape of the towers, the openings and the changes in scale, add a sense of human proportions and individuality to the huge mass of the buildings

The dominant regular grid of the façade,accentuated by dominant expression of the diagonal reinforcement beams , reinforce the sense of human scale

QLAB’s NTFSH Gymnasium is characterized by a basic morphological box with A dominant regular grid on the façade, accentuated by diagonal reinforcement beams

  Does the NTFSH Gymnasium  represents the principles of Conscious Inspiration  

My personal opinion…. not enough

From Eliinbar's Sketchbook 2013  "If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right"

From  Eliinbar Sketchbook 2013  “If You’re Gonna Do It, Do It Right

While  Steven Hall’s “Sliced ​​Porosity Block” is characterized by openings and changes in scale, that add a sense of human proportions and individuality , QLAB’s NTFSH Gymnasium ,is characterized by a basic morphological box 

 The effort expended on the NTFSH Gymnasium’s façades, is relevant?
