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

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 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.

Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de the 2011 Pritzker Prize laureate.

In this post and the subsequent posts I’ll try to find out what are his sources of inspiration.

Will it help us to add new tools to the “Conscious Inspiration Toolbox” ?

The “conscious inspiration” Signs :

1. Both buildings deal with the “Edge of the cliff”.

2. The buildings are designed in a unique simplicity:

Sealed envelope, transparent façade.

3. The building Deliberate in a Clear direction.

4. Significant source of inspiration:

A hand with fingers, with a fragmented shape.

“Origami Envelopes” – Conscious Inspiration

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2011 by eliinbar

Origami from ori meaning “folding“, and kami meaning “paper”; kami changes to gami due to rendaku is the traditional Japanese folk art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD and was popularized in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami.
