eliinbar’s sketches 2014-Branching design or in other words the “Bird nest” typology

 eliinbar’s sketches 2014 – Branching design or in other words the “Bird nest” typology

Today’s post will be the third of a series, inquiring whether one of the leading architectural firms in the world, OMA of Rem Koolhaas, is a popular Inspiration Source for architects today.

Today’s main configuration of a building designed by Oma and Rem Koolhass is a prominent source of inspiration , the branching design or in other words the “bird nest” typology .

THE MAIN CONFIGURATION

Branching design

The branching design is based on Toyo Ito’s and Cecil Balmond’s

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion (2002) in London shown in the next image.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion (2002) in London

A few words about Cecil Balmond:

Cecil Balmond sees his work as an open-ended visual application of theory, following the principle that “structure as conceptual rigour is architecture

Balmond’s research is about complexity and non-linear organization ,he investigates mathematical concepts and their influence on natural forms and structures

A few words about Toyo Ito:

Toyo Ito received the Royal Gold Medal at the RIBA on 15 February 2006

Jack Pringle, RIBA President described Toyo Ito’s work :.

Toyo Ito has been an inspiration for generations of architects worldwide since his work started to receive international acclaim in the 1970s. For thirty years he has been a leading figure in architecture and I am delighted that he has accepted the Royal Gold Medal.

THE ORIGINS

(Inspiration Sources)

It is hard to say for certain ..but I think that the following projects are definitely good candidates to be the ORIGINS sources of inspiration for the BRANCHING design
and the BIRD NEST typology

BIRD NEST typology

BRANCHING design

In 2001,architect Toyo Ito designed Tods’ Omotesando Store in Tokyo.

A unique organic design that was called the “Tree Building

Tods’ Omotesando Store in Tokyo 2002-2004

and it’s Inspiration source, the Zelkova trees shown in the next image  : (Tods’ Store is located in Omotesandō who is a Zelkova tree-lined avenue located in Shibuya and Minato,Tokyo)

04-shade-trees

Toyo Ito about Tods’ Omotesando Store in Tokyo (From  HOUSE VARIETY) :

we enclosed the site with a wall that gives the impression of a row Zelkova trees  The facade of criss-crossed concrete braces reinterprets the silhouettes of the trees on the Omotesandō. This exterior surface serves as both graphic pattern and structural system

Our various studies started with the question, “How can we escape the conventional notion of a wall structure?” In other words, we were seeking a way to avoid transparent openings in an opaque volume. Instead of distinguishing transparency from opaqueness, we were seeking a new method that would simultaneously define and unite them – we were attempting to relate all the lines (columns), surfaces (walls), and openings in an innovative way. Our studies suddenly moved in a different direction after formulating the question: “Shouldn’t it be possible to create a surface as structure that directly expresses the flow of force, so long as it is formed as a structural diagram drawn as a pattern of thick lines on a flat surface?”

what did i learn from this post?

As in any field that deals with  creation and invention, the people engaged in it are divided into two groups.

The first group is very small, they have the skills that allow them to innovate Big time.

Most of us belong to the second group, we get inspiration from the first group.

I do not think there is a problem with that….

The big questions are:

Do we know how to  be  inspired in a conscious way?

Do we know how to choose our source of inspiration in a way that enhances our buildings?

Do we copy and paste, or insist to add our invention?

What are the tools needed to improve the realization of the three previous questions?

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 uniquesite

 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 ,I will show some Interesting  inspiration techniques

from Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012 –

Eliinbar’s Sketches 2012 –Zaha Hadid’s “aggressive snake motif

sketches-for-baner-etzy2-copy-3-copy-copy-copy[1]

Today post presents for the fifth time, my New “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,nor exciting prose

Their inspiration sources are existing buildings

You might remember the post-modernism trend in the 80s

Sources of inspiration for this style/trend were classical buildings, Nothing else

 ? What does it indicates about us

It indicates that there is an expanding phenomenon and we can not ignore it

Architects are inspired by existing buildings as a method

 ? So what’s the problem 

The problem is that some of us are experiencing difficulty getting inspired from existing buildings

Sometimes the result of this process, looks more likeCopy-paste” rather than conscious inspiration

 ? So how to get inspired consciously from existing buildings

 

 

 ? 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 Four: realize your design idea ,your invention

Now that we are familiar with the four steps of the Conscious Inspiration Method, let’s learn how to implement this  method in daily life

But first we must define the challenges facing us

Here are the five “HOWS” of the Conscious Inspiration Method

A. How to filter out relevant knowledge from the Web?…. with abundance of information

 ? B. How to develop your own vision

  C.  How to choose the right “Inspiration Sources” ?  that empowers your vision

? D.  How to develop your own personal design tools

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

 

In conclusion

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

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

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

Finally two examples of buildings published  in ARCHDAILY for you to judge

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

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

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.

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”.

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?
