Kurt Cobain  , Nirvana’s  music band songwriter,guitarist and lead singer was proud to share with us his musical influences (Inspiration Sources)…. the Beatles,Pixies,Sonic Youth ,R.E.M ,Led Zeppelin ,Black Sabbath and other well known music Bands.

? So why architects , always claim they get inspired in their dreams

I learned during  my journey in this blog,  that inspiration from existing buildings, is common among architects

 But I also learned something else

A relatively large group of architects lack the “tools” to make the distinction between “copy-paste” and Conscious Inspiration

 In this blog I want ,to clarify the differences between the disturbing phenomenon that is commonly called “copy-paste” , and the positive phenomenon I encourage …. Conscious Inspiration

In my next posts, I intend to suggest Inspiration techniques, that will help young architects to get inspired from existing buildings….in a CONSCIOUS way

Let’s look at the short story I brought today

this is Halliday Avray-Wilson ,Twisting Male  Torso Sculpture

artpark_sculpture_halliday_avray-wilson_twisting_male_torso_1

And this is the Santiago Calatrava’s Twisting Torso Sculpture from 1999

Inspiered by Halliday Avray-Wilson’s , Twisting Male  Torso Sculpture

Santiago Calatrava's Twisting Torso Sculpture from 1999

The next image is Santiago Calatrava’s sketch showing how he got inspired from Halliday Avray-Wilson , Twisting Male  Torso Sculpture -(right), when he designed the HSB Turning Torso in Malmo Sweden -on the left

Santiago Calatrava's sketch showing how he got inspired from Halliday Avray-Wilson , Twisting Male  Torso Sculpture (right), when he designed the HSB Turning Torso in Malmo Sweden (left)

And this is Frank O. Gehry’s building in Hanover Germany  from 1999-2001

Frank O. Gehry's building in Hanover Germany  from  1999-2001

In 2001-2005 Santiago Calatrava realized his vision from 1999, with the HSB Turning Torso in Malmo Sweden ,shown in the next image

Eliinbar's sketch 2013-Frank Gehry and Santiago Calatrava practicing "Conscious Inspiration"

Eliinbar Sketches 2013 -Frank Gehry and Santiago Calatrava practicing  Conscious Inspiration

You probably noticed the morphological resemblance betwwen Frank Gehry’s twisted building in Hanover Germany and Santiago Calatrava’s HSB Turning Torso in Malmo

Curious coincidence, the two projects were designed and built during the same years…. One may assume that this is another typical example of Conscious inspiration

?what did I learn from this post

 Santiago Calatrava’s inspiration source for the HSB Turning Torso in Malmo was Halliday Avray-Wilson’s ,Twisting Male  Torso Sculpture….This Is a typical example of an “inspiration source” that is not an existing building

 And Frank Gehry’s inspiration source for the twisted building in Hanover Germany, is a typical example of an “inspiration source” that is an existing building

 So we can distinguish between two types of Inspiration Sources

Inspiration from the “Outside world of architecture” ,like  in the case of  Santiago  Calatrava’s HSB Turning Torso

and Inspiration from the “Inside world of architecture” ,  like  in the case of Frank Gehry’s twisted building in Hanover Germany

 So obvious ….. but  not…. I’ll check it in future posts

 

Zaha Hadid ….She is once more, involved with the issue of “conscious inspiration”….

Eliinbar Sketches 2013  -  Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects Inspired by Construction Methods

Eliinbar’s Sketches 2013  –  Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects, Inspired by Construction Methods

This blog

examines the inspiration sources of contemporary architectural projects

 ….I put a virtual mirror  reflecting processes of conscious and unconscious inspiration among Architects

….and you judge

 But my challenge is not over yet

….If my “mirror” reflects the reality correctly

Then is needed a change in architecture profession training

….And I will explane

.You probably noticed that the differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “Copy paste” are rather vague

And there is a consensus that

 Copy-paste” is disastrous for the architectural profession”

We all know that the basis for all architectural design , is the unique site on which the building is built

?so how can we copy buildings

For that I strive to develope a responsive training method for architects

.I call it the Conscious Inspiration Method

.The “Conscious Inspiration Method” is  learning to be inspired consciously from existing buildings

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our designing tools =“Codex Rules”, it will lead us to high quality creative architecture

.

I believe that the natural development of architecture design is based on inspiration techniques ….I call them Codex Rules

In my next posts ,with the aid of the big master Le Corbusier I will show some Interesting  inspiration techniques

….Enough with the theory…. lets place the mirror

In this post I will put my virtual “mirror” in front of two architectural projects among 5 finalist for ARCHDAILY building of the year awards 2012

The first example demonstrates inspiration from  construction methods

A “short talk” about “Conscious Inspiration”  January 2013

Inspiration” or “Copy Paste” are the most dominant phenomenon of the 21st century among architects.

Most likely , the “availability of information” enables the existence of the phenomenon.

The abundance of information in the Web affects us all…. I present it every week in my blog, accompanied by my explanation sketches.

We saw more than once, differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “copy paste” are not so big….

With this challenge, the “Conscious inspiration Method” wants to cope .

I believe that the natural development of architecture design is based on inspiration techniques ….I call them “Codex Rules”.

I strive to develop a method.

A method that will help architects and designers to cope with this phenomenon, At this point in time, I call it the “Conscious Inspiration Method” ….

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our tools =“Codex Rules”, it will lead us to high quality creative architecture.

The Conscious Inspiration Method‘ ,  How it Works?

First step: “knowledge”, as many said and wrote before; knowledge 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.

Second step: develop Conscious Inspiration personal  tools = “Codex Rules”.

Third step: the inspiration Source. (Don’t be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings).

Step Fourrealize your design idea (your invention).

Five “HOWS” of the “Conscious Inspiration Method

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 0wn personal design tools?

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

 

Andy Warhol, What do you think about the “Conscious Inspiration Method”?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2013 by eliinbar

Sure you encounter Andy Warhol‘s famous Statement:  Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes

Apparently it will take much longer, if you make a proper use of the Conscious Inspiration Method

Here is the short story, how Andy Warhol successfully uses the “Conscious Inspiration Method” to become one of the most famous and influential artists of the 20th century

The next image is One of 32 Campbell’s soup cans Andy Warhol produced in 1961

for his breakthrough exhibition in 1962

The next image is One of 32 Campbell's soup cans Andy Warhol produced in 1961 for his breakthrough exhibition in 1962.

The individual paintings were produced by a  printmaking  method

the semi-mechanized screen printing process, using a non painterly style

And this is the sculpture created by American artist Jasper Johns in 1960 two years before before Andy Warhol introduced Campbell’s Soup 32 Cans

JOHNS, Jasper Painted Bronze (Ballantine Ale) 1960

JOHNS, Jasper
Painted Bronze (Ballantine Ale) 1960

 

Apparently Andy Warhol is not the first one who was aided by the Conscious Inspiration Method

The next painting was made by Claude Gelle’e a 17th-century painter

Claude Gelle’e's painting from 1654

Claude Gelle’e’s painting from 1654

And this  painting was made by the famous painter J.M.W. Turner who worked and lived in the 19th century

Epilogue

Conscious inspiration’s third Step, is all about the Inspiration Source….Don’t be intimidated to get inspired from relevant inspiration sources

JOHNS, Jasper‘s painted Bronze cans. were practically Andy Warhol’s  Inspiration Source….the Painted Bronze cans, marked a new artistic direction by depicting ordinary and recognizable objects, or “things the mind already knows,” as he has said. Yet, at the same time, he portrayed these everyday objects in a very non-representational manner, endowing them with new, often ambiguous meanings; in this sense, his work simultaneously expanded and rejected Abstract Expressionism

Conscious inspiration’s  fourth Step, is all about realizing your invention

Andy Warhol’s  individual Campbell’s soup cans paintings, were his invention, they were produced by a printmaking method—the semi-mechanized screen printing process, using a non-painterly style. Campbell’s Soup Cans’ reliance on themes from popular culture helped to usher in pop art as a major art movement in the USA

From time to time I come across a building that explains everything

Recently been completed the construction of Zaha Hadid‘s Galaxy Soho

Beijing China

?What are the sources of inspiration for this building

 

I can think about two sources of inspiration for the Zaha Hadid‘s Galaxy Soho.

Frank Lloyd Write‘s Guggenheim Museum’s is  Zaha Hadid‘s   Source of Knowledge

.”And Foster‘s London City Hall is the “Source of Inspiration

 

Each one of them has a different role in generating Zaha Hadid‘s design for the Galaxy Soho

For You to judge

Notice the morphological similarity, both buildings are perforated boxes, characterized by morphology of a sponge, designed according to the “Sponge Concept” – strategy.

But the previous story,  is maybe least interesting …. What do you think about this story?

Before the Steven Holl ‘s Tianjin Ecocity Ecology and Planning Museums were built , One can see ,that Steve Holl’s well known sketches are already the source of inspiration for Leading architects.

  All of the next buildings are perforated boxes, characterized by morphology of a sponge, designed according to the “Sponge Concept” .
