Does Cesar Pelli implements the “Conscious inspiration” method?

It seems that Cesar Pelli starts his designs by making a research…. 

Decodes the “DNA” of his favorite architect (Eliel Saarinen?)

Implements his “vocabulary” ….

Adds its own approaches….

Adjust his project to the environment….

And design high-quality and contemporary towers

– 

Well, this is “Conscious Inspiration”

Before starting, two interesting facts about Cesar Pelli: 

1.At the year 1991, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) listed Pelli among the ten most influential living American architects.

2. He started his career in the new Haven offices of architect Eero Saarinen( the son of Eliel Saarinen-who won the second Place at the Chicago Tribune Tower Competition in 1922).
