Today post presents for the seventh 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,not exciting prose

Their inspiration sources are existing buildings

– 

 ? 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 like “Copy-paste” rather than conscious inspiration

 

? So how to get inspired consciously from existing buildings

– 

You are invited to join me to a very short journey uncovering the inspiration sources of a Snailtower designed by Künnapu & Padrik Architects

 published lately in ARCHDAILY

In my privious post we saw how Steven Holl Is inspiered consciously from Le Corbusier‘s  La Tourette  monastery

Le Corbusier’s La Tourette  monastery, is Steven Holl’s  Inspiration building

The Snailtower building , published lately in ARCHDAILY, is characterized by a variety of sources of inspirations

for you to judge

  What was the “floor plans strategy” of the “SnailTower” designers

This is Zvi Hecker’s floorplan for the  spiral apartment house in Ramat gan Israel, designed and built in the 70s

Published in  arcspace.com

Zvi Hecker's floorplan for the  spiral apartment house in Ramat gan Israel, designed and built in the 70s.

And this is the Snailtower typical floor plan

Published in ARCHDAILY in may 2013

Snailtower typical floor plan

Notice the spiral floorplan with the apartments grouped around a central, load bearing column within which all the service functions were located. In the Spiral House, the retaining column has been removed and replaced by an open courtyard

The Spiral House deploys the principle of terracing typical of Arab villages where the roof is used as part of the living space for the apartments. The organization of the living spaces around an interior courtyard and the use of inexpensive, readily available materials are local components that compliment the geometric order based on a spiral.

Zaha Hadid helps us raise a critical issue that should concern us all …. how to get inspired from existing buildings consciously

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2013 by eliinbar

From Eliinbar's Sketches 2013-Zaha Hadid and the "Copy Paste" Syndrom

From  Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2013 -Zaha Hadid and the “Copy Paste” Syndrom

Today’s post gets a boost from two recent articles, published in ARCHDAILY

The articles explor the disturbing phenomenon of “copy-paste” in architecture

You already know my opinion on this subject

The main question is not whether to copy existing buildings

This has been a fact, which is part of our professional life

You are invited to examine hundreds of examples that reinforce this claim in my blog

Our challenge today, as I would put it

is how to get inspired consciously from existing buildings

Do not be ashame to be inspired by existing buildings, as long as you do it consciously

Certainly, this is the natural process, which architecture is going towards

 

For the fourth time, Since I started the“Conscious Inspiration” project = 100 Conscious projects in 200 days , Here is another relevant example published in ARCHDAILY in 9 april 2013

This is Zaha Hadid‘s Wangjing SOHO from 2011

Zaha Hadid Architect Wangjing SOHO China published 2011

Wangjing SOHO China

“And the next image is Zaha Hadid‘s Wangjing Soho “twin

This building is under construction, It is built in Chongqing , china

Meiquan-22nd-Century-Chongqing

?Do you realy think this post will stop with the Chongqing project

Obviously it will not finish there, because “Copy Paste” is has been a fact, which is part of our professional life

We have just seen an example from “real life“,  Zaha Hadid‘s Wangjing SOHO

But the phenomenon is much broader and complex

This is our reality, and we can not ignore it

So let’s not fight it. or forbid or even despise this phenomenon

Our duty is to develop methods and ways to “copy” properly

Or as I put it ,  to be inspired consciously

To avoid any misunderstanding , I am not talking about waking in the morning with a some kind of ready-made inspiration

To be inspired consciously is a structured process we can practice it and perfect it

I feel ready to share with you my thoughts ,how  to apply it in our professional life

….To be continued

let’s get back to the regular course of this post

what do you think was Zaha Hadid‘s inspiration source when she designed the Wangjing SOHO

Well I can suggest this projects….for you to judge

Here are examples that strengthen my argument, that “copy-paste” is a common phenomenon these days

The “twin” that was found to Zaha Hadid’s Wangjing SOHO Is not a single incident

this is a common phenomenon

Here are some examples for you to judge

Today’s post presents for the third time, my New “Conscious Inspiration” project…. 100 Conscious projects in 200 days

In the following 200 days I will present 100 projects that are published  in ARCHDAILY ,the world’s most visited architecture website.

Followers of  SOMEONE  HAS  BUILT IT BEFORE will judge it , from this  point of view

Are the buildings published in ARCHDAILY,designed according to the principals of Conscious Inspiration

Or maybe by accident, they are the victims of the Copy Paste syndrome

Obviously, I will contribute by adding my input

What do you think?….We will find more of the “Conscious Inspiration” designs or “Copy Paste”  designs

?What we will learn from this project

And my last crop. is here for you to judge

The next building was published in ARCHDAILY in 6 april 2013

This is the Maranello Library desingnd by Andrea Maffei Architects in 2011

OMA and Zaha Hadid are defining the differences between the “Periodic Inspiration” and the “Specific Inspiration”

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

The next image is OMA‘s stock exchange in Shenzhen Chaina

From Eliinbar's sketchbook 2013- OMA   Stok exchange in shenzen the ultimate "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

For the complete story of this sketch , you are invited to visit my post https://archidialog.com/2010/07/11/le-corbusier-zaha-hadid-les-pilotis-conscious-inspiration-1/

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

Check the   NEW  CONSCIOUS  INSPIRATION  PAGE

?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

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

For You to judge

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?
