More than once I am asked 

Define, in one sentence the difference between Conscious Inspiration to copy-paste

:  And my anwer is

The fundamental difference between“Copy Paste” and Conscious Inspiration is that in “Conscious Inspiration” we Implement our INVENTION

And I’ll be more specific in future posts

In this post I will share with you my distinguishing between two Sources of Inspiration

“the “Periodic Inspiration

“and the “Specific Inspiration

From Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2013 – OMA’s  Stok exchange in shenzen the ultimate  Specific Inspiration

Note to the prominent boxy morphology of both buildings

Both buildings are defined by the conceptual idea of “flying buildings” or “buildings moving” …. we recognise from the 60s  ARCHIGRAM

The main constructive solution is based on metal, a striking visual feature of diagonal columns and beams

The constructive solution is a prominent visual element in the facades of the building, and characterized by a transparency that eliminate the traditional concept of a window, A curtain wall

All this makes OMA‘s Stok exchange in shenzen the ultimate “Specific Inspiration” for the new Hong Kong Institute of Design

 ?So what is the “Periodic Inspiration”  and how does it affects us

 

Periodic Inspiration  is a source of inspiration that affects us all. We often identify it with architectural trends

Here is how the “Periodic Inspiration” affects the designers of the Hong Kong Institute of Design

“In a previous post of mine I presented the “Flouting Buildins Trend

-A dominant representative of this trend  , is Zahah Hadid‘s  Expo Centre exhibition halls and residential tower project in Moscow Russia, Published in 2007….shown in the next image

Notice the dominant characteristics of this trend

horizontal proportioned structure lifted off the ground

Creating a covered public space at ground level

The following sketch illustrates this architectural concept

From Eliinbar's sketchbook

?What are the origins ( inspiration Sources)  for this trend

The folowing sketch examines the option that Zaha Hadid’s inspiration sources for the “Floating buildings trend” are Le Corbusier’s visionary piloties, developed in the 50s

My folowing sketch examines a “Cousin” of the “Floating buildings trend” the “Moving Buildings Trend” that its origins are probably the work of the  “Archigrm Group“, that worked in the 60s

The big “conscious inspiration” project

Buildings that will be published in ARCHDAILY in the following weeks will be judged by the Followers of  SOMEONE  HAS  BUILT IT BEFORE from the viewpoint ,did this building was designed according to the principals of the “Conscious inspiration“? ,or may be, by accident , that the building is a victim of the  “Copy Paste”  syndrom

Obviously I will add pictures of buildings and sketches, from my recent posts, to clarify

 

Frank Gehry and Santiago Calatrava gives us a short lesson about “Conscious Inspiration”

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

HSB Turning Torso in Malmo Sweden

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

From eliinbar’s sketch book 2012 - the inspiration source of the Origami Envelopes trend

From  Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012 – the inspiration sources of the “Origami Envelopes Trend”

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.

In this post I will examine  the “Origami Envelopes trend”

For more information about the “Origami Envelopes trend”, you are invited to visit my post: Preston Scott Cohen and the “Origami Envelopes trend”

What are the inspiration Sources for the “Origami Envelopes trend”?

I can think about three sources of inspiration for the “Origami Envelopes trend”.

1.The origami traditional Japanese art.

2.Peter Eisenman’s  Max Reinhardts Haus project. from 1992.

3.Preston Scott Cohen’s Tel Aviv Museum –  2003-2010.

Each one of them has a different role in generating the “Origami Envelopes trend”.

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 Four: realize 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?

Here is the full story for this sketch, as was published in my blog

From Eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012 - OMA’s Central Chinese TV Building….”Influences

From Eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012 – OMA’s Central Chinese TV Building….”Influences”

Recently I found a Rem Koolhaas twitt related to the Questions I raise in this blog….

Influence is a very unpleasant subject and I deal with it in a maybe irresponsible way, which is to really ignore it.”

Well…. Rem Koolhaas is no doubt one of the influential architects in our time….

Are the Max Reinhardts Haus project designed by Peter Eisenman and the “Arche de la Defense France” designed by Johann Otto von Spreckelsen shown in the next images ….Were OMA and REM KOOLHAAS  inspiration source when they designed the Central Chinese TV Building?

For you to judge…

The most dominant Characteristic of OMA’s Central Chinese TV Building,

Is its configuration….

A Sequence of prisms, vertical and horizontal, connected to create a closed shape, highlighted with a significant open space, in the center

Notice the morphological resembles to OMA’s Central Chinese TV Building…. A Sequence of prisms, vertical and horizontal’ connected to create a closed shape, highlighted with a significant open space, in the center

Let’s check if those buildings are more the type of “CONSCIOUS INSPIRATION” or the type of “COPY PASTE”….

Buildings designed according to the principles of “Conscious Inspiration“, are  identified  by means of three principles:

1. You can easily identify the sources of knowledge.

2. There is a clear expression of unique planning tools = ”Codex Rolls”.

3. Stands out, the architect’s Invention.

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.

Note the dominant morphological of this building

Big Horizontal prisms placed over each other perpendicularly.

It is noticeable for the observer…. most likely , A-lab‘s “sources of inspiration”  are Herzog de Meuron’s Vitra Haus Showroom and OMA’s  residential project in Singapor,shown in the next images

….Note the morphological resemblance….Big Horizontal prisms, placed over each other, in rotation, creating a stable structure

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….

It’s not a secret anymore, OMA and its spiritual father, Rem Koolhaas, are a critical source of inspiration to contemporary architecture….

In this post we’ll take a short break from the discussion about the “Conscious Inspiration Method”.

Here are two examples, among many others, that show cases of “conscious inspiration” or “copy-paste” Of buildings that got inspired from OMA…. For you to judge….
