From  Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012 –the inspiration sources of the“Extroverted building”

For more information about the “Extroverted buildings trend” you are invited to visit my post: “Extrovert  inspiration

I have nothing against trends. 

There is an interest to recognize the existence of trends, and understand their origins.

From time to time I like to examine, the hottest trends in architecture.

Visit my previous post  “Origami Envelopes Trend

In this post I will examine the “Extroverted buildings trend” = (buildings that Invite us to climb on them )

What are the inspirations Sources for the “Extroverted buildings trend”?

I can think about three dominant sources of inspiration for the “Extroverted buildings trend”.

1.The Pyramid  El Castillo in Chichen Itzan  Mexico ,built between 9th and 12th centuries.

2. Snohetta’s Oslo Opera House Norway 2003-2007.

3. BIG’s , Bjarke Ingels Group Danish Pavilion ,Shanghai Expo 2010.

Each one of them has a different role in generating the “Extroverted buildings trend”.

The “Knowledge base”

Pyramid  El Castillo in Chichen Itzan  Mexico was built between 9th and 12th centuries by the pre-Colombian Maya ,and is designed to allow the public to get on it….

Here is a very short video that my youngest son photographed, my daughter edited and the eldest son chose the background music, documenting , the preparation process of a sketch.

They called it “ Sketch is born

Note that you see the video from the viewpoint of my eyes, How did they do it?

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, the differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “copy paste” are not so big….

And that is exactly what I clarify in my blog.

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 and 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 your personal Conscious Inspiration 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).

The 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 personal Design tools?

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

In this post we will learn about MVRDV’s Inspiration sources …. Or maybe it’s a “self fulfilling prophecy”….

For you to judge….

In the next image a building designed by Rem Koolhaas in Bangkok, Thailand in 1996 .

The building is designed according to the “Stacking Diagram design Strategy”

Rem Koolhaas & OMA Architects

The Hyperbuilding , A self-contained city for 120,000 inhabitants with housing, education, culture, welfare, medical facilities, amusement, industry, retail .

 Bangkok, Thailand  1996

How does the “Stacking Diagram design Strategy” works? 

First step: definition of size and shape of the spaces in accordance with the program.

Second step: designing the building as a “stacking Diagram” emphasizing the program.

I can estimate

that the Berlin Voids housing project designed by MVRDV in early 90s is the source of inspiration for the “Stacking Diagram design Strategy”? 

– 

Well…Is MVRDV’s Berlin Voids housing project designed in the 90’s is MVRDV’s “self fulfilling prophecy“?

Finally, it is hard to ignore another two dominant planning strategies,highlighted in MVRDV’s  Jakarta’s  vertical city building ….

I call them “Multi Style Buildings Trend” and the “Revolving/Rotated floors buildings”

– 

“Multi Style Buildings Trend”:   Buildings designed by one architect divided into several parts. Each part of the building is characterized by a different architectural style.( materials, different morphology, the building envelope, the building openings etc.)

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.

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

A building designed according to the guiding principles of “conscious inspiration

Neil M. Denari Architects in collaboration with Taiwanese architectural firm Fei and Cheng Associates are not intimidated to get inspired from “relevant buildings.

They developed their “tools”=”Codex rules”=”design Strategies”…. and it leads them to high quality and creative architecture ….

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….

Once we develop our “TOOLS”=”Codex rules”, it will lead us to high quality and creative architecture.

“Conscious Inspiration” the ultimate inspiration methodology

I invite you all to contribute in developing the attitude and tools towards the viability of the “Conscious Inspiration” Method.

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.

Bjarke Ingels’s “Multiplying architecture strategy”,or In other words ….the “Self inspiration strategy”…. . can we consider it as”Conscious Inspiration”?

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2012 by eliinbar

From  eliinbar’s sketch book 2012  Bjarke Ingels’s “Multiplying architecture strategy”

I often get the impression that there is a common phenomenon among successful architects that is worth checking out….

I call this phenomenon the “Multiplying architecture strategy”…. (Multiplying of architectural ideas or“Self inspiration”)

I was taught as a young architect, that architecture is distinguished from other design professions, because of its hard connection to a specific place ….

So how it becomes that the “Multiplying architecture strategy” or the “Self inspiration strategy”…. flourishes among the most talented architects working today?

 

Let’s start our short journey with two Bjarke Ingels’s examples

What did I learn from this post? 

Your own project can be your inspiration source .

Practically your design process is your inspiration source…. 

I can even suggest a name for this design process -“Conscious Inspiration

 

Bjarke Ingels ,Zaha Hadid and SANAA are getting inspired Consciously from Steven Holl’s “Sponge Concept”.

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2012 by eliinbar

From  eliinbar’s sketch book 2010 – The evolution of the Steven Holl’s “Sponge Concept”

Somewhere in the 90’, Steven Holl studied a new morphological design notion…..The “Menger Sponge” 

The next image is a concept model showing the ““Menger Sponge

And this is  Steven Holl’s  Sarphatistraat offices

Steven Holl Architects

 Sarphatistraat offices

Amsterdam, The Netherlands  1996 – 2000

For more information visit  ARCHDAILY.COM  

It seems as if  Steven Holl’s exterior design, was inspired by the “Menger sponge”….Notice the largest square openings in the center of each facade.

One Year later Steven Holl designed the Simmons Hall and implemented his “Sponge Concept” design strategy ….

Steven Holl’s Sketch showing a typical Simmons hall’s vertical section 1999-2002

Note the vertical shapeless spaces in Steven Holl’s sketch, colored in white.

A reasonable assumption ….Steve Holl’s inspiration source is

The unique structure of a “sponge”

And the next image, is Steven Holl‘s Simmons hall in MIT Cambridge USA 1999-2002

Notice the inspiration effect of the “Menger Sponge” on Steven Holl’s Facades..

Notice also the external expression of the “sponge Concept “…. the “amoeba shaped” openings.

                                                       –                                                                   

Two years later Steven Holl designed a building for Nanning ,China  and once more he implements the “Sponge Concept” design strategy ….

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2012 by eliinbar


From eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012, SANAA and the “Shifted Buildings Trend”

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 

for more information visit  ARCHDAILY.COM

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.

For more information visit  ARCHDAILY.COM

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 …. 

From eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012 , BIG’s architects “Augmented reality design strategy

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?
