From  Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012 –the inspiration sources of the“Extroverted building”

For more information about the “Extroverted buildings trend” you are invited to visit my post: “Extrovert  inspiration

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”.

The “Knowledge base”

Pyramid  El Castillo in Chichen Itzan  Mexico was built between 9th and 12th centuries by the pre-Colombian Maya ,and is designed to allow the public to get on it….

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

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?

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?

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.

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….

In every direction I check….eventually all roads lead to OMA.

This post Is about one of the most Inspirational architecture firms working today….  MVRDV.

Maas and Van Rijs, two of MVRDV founding members, worked at OMA.

The next image is a housing complex designed by MVRDV in 1999…It’s called the FLYING VILLAGE (Villa Voladora –In Vienna, Austria)

Five years later (2004) the contemporary architectural firm SANAA, design the Rolex Learning Center, at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

It is hard to ignore the morphological similarity between MVRDV’s and SANAA’s  projects.

But the story begins long before….

What are the origins of this architecture approach?

What is the justification for the huge financial effort required to build the  Rolex Learning Center?

What is the added value that the user gets for this effort?

Well in this blog I do not deal with these questions….

The questions that concern me are….

What were the sources of inspiration that eventually generated these structures?

I think that “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 here ….We saw more than once ….The differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “copy paste” are not so big….

 And that is exactly what I intend to clarify and understand in this blog.

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

 –

And finally 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.

Let’s see how the “Conscious Inspiration” works for SANAA….

“knowledge”

Conscious Inspiration” is first of all the understanding of the importance of “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….

The buildings Presented in the next images is in my opinion, the “Knowledge”, that was the inspiration base for The Rolex Learning Center

Inspiration, Consciousness and “copy paste”….and everything in between….

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 4, 2012 by eliinbar

From  Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012  -”Copy Paste” Or “Conscious Inspiration”

The example presented to you in this post, is a bit confusing…. 

I must admit ….At first glance, I thought this example is a typical incident of “copy-paste” 

Later on I changed my mind….

This is a new building built in Taiwan

For more information about this building, browse to the next Site:   http://forgemind.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=24&p=111763

Now look at the following Building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the 30s (1936 to 1939)

This is the Interior, “Great Workroom”, of the Johnson Wax Headquarters building.

You probably noticed the obvious morphological resemblance between the “Mushroom Pillars”,in both projects . 

Notice also the innovative system, that allowed natural light to penetrate in between the “Mushroom Pillars”.… 

Let’s find out, how to distinguish between projects that are inspired “Consciously “to” copy-paste”. 

What distinguishes “Conscious Inspiration “from “copy-paste” ? 

….When we add our Invention”.

I believe that each one of us can give a better expression to his talents by adding an Invention ….to an existing building….

Once again look at the next image of the building built in Taiwan

Now here comes the “Invention”…..

See the bottom of the next sketch.

From  Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012   “Conscious Inspiration”Invention”…..

Notice the non-symmetrical shape of the”Mushroom Pillars” of the Taiwan’s building ….

 Notice also the smooth and liquid appearance of the “Mushroom Pillars’s”….Unlike the structural appearance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Johnson Wax Headquarters building. ….

Also note the Ideal Disorder dispersion of the “Mushroom Pillars” in accordance with the “Ideal Disorder Design Strategy” = IDDS….

Unlike the orthogonal dispersion of the”Mushroom Pillars” in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Johnson Wax Headquarters building.

 

For you to judge….

What did I learn from this post?

1. I believe that each one of us can give a better expression to his talents and Invention ….by implement the  “Conscious Inspiration” Method ….

2. Be inspired consciously from existing buildings. It will lead us to experience a unique design process that will serve our creative desires….

3. The initial difference between “Copy Paste” and “Conscious Inspiration

Is adding our “Invention”…..

Le Corbusier’s “dream and broke”….

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier’s dream and broke

Inspiration sketch Gallery (ISG) by Eli Inbar

This post tells Le Corbusier’s tragic story ….

Le Corbusier is a visionary…. outstanding architect ….who left us unique and inspiring projects such as :

1.Ron champ chapelhttps://archidialog.com/2012/07/30/

2.la Tourette Monasteryhttps://archidialog.com/2012/09/09/

3.Unite D’habitation in Marseillehttps://archidialog.com/2011/11/28/

4.Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh- https://archidialog.com/2012/10/08

And other masterpieces….

Certainly Le Corbusier is the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects, in the last century.

Unfortunately Le Corbusier is also the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects who their planning processes is more like the “Unconscious inspiration”= “Copy Paste

And this is how the  story starts….

It all started with Le Corbusier’s Vision of a La Ville Radieus = Radiant city, in the 30s’ of  the last century.

La Ville Radieus promised future of sunshine, fresh air and greenery for city-dwellers.

The design maintained the idea of high-rise housing blocks, free circulation and abundant green spaces…. The blocks of housing were laid out in long lines stepping in and out, and were raised up on pilotis.

They had roof terraces and running tracks on their roofs. La Ville Radieus will be the vertical garden city….

See the next sketches by Le Corbusier showing the  high-rise housing blocks 

And the green, landscaped spaces surrounding them

“The city of tomorrow or the relationship between nature and man will be restored”La Ville Radieus = Radiant city

sketch by Le Corbusier showing the Radiant city, high-rise housing blocks  and the green landscaped spaces surrounding them….

 The next sketch by Le Corbusier, is showing a typical section of  Unite D’habitation =high-rise housing block .

notice it is raised up on pilotis  ,the green landscape spaces surrounding it exactly as  Le Corbusier’s Vision for “La Ville Radieus”  =  “radiant city”

Unite D’habitation in Marseille was the first order Le Corbusier received from the French state starts to be scheduled immediately after the Second World War (1945-46), and was finished in 1952.

1. Le Corbusier’s Unite D’habitation in Marseille comprises 337 apartments arranged over twelve stories.

2. The apartments are suspended on large piloties .that aloude free circulation and abundant green spaces….Sport at the foot of the houses

3. The building also incorporates  with shops ,sporting, medical and educational facilities, a hotel which is open to the public, and a gastronomic restaurant.

4. Its flat roof is designed as a communal terrace with sculptural ventilationstacks, a running track, a shallow paddling pool for children, and an open-air theatre.

5. The building is constructed in béton brut (rough-cast concrete).

Notice the Uniqueness of this building….

 Le Corbusier painted the apartments in different colors, to create an identity for each resident..

Now let’s examine how  Le Corbusier vision for the “Radiant City” and the”Unite D’habitation”

Inspired ,architectural projects, being built in our time….

See the next image showing the giant apartment blocks ….at a

renewable area (A “Radiant city”?) near Hong Kong’s airport ,

Built in recent years….

Where are the fresh air and greenery?

Where is the vertical garden city?

Where are the “green, landscaped spaces”?

Is this the “radiant city”Corbusier imagined?

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier’s dream and broke the “radiant City”

And this is a typical “Unite D’habitation” …. Hong Kong’s style….built in recent years.

Where are the raised up pilotis?

Where are the green landscape spaces?

Where are the communal terraces?

Is this the“Unite D’habitation” Corbusier imagined?

 –  

What is remained from le Corbusier’s vision of the “Unite D’habitation”?….

A giant apartment-block with endless repetitive apartments,

Lacking uniqueness….

From   Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier’s dream and broke “Unite D’habitation”.

And this is exactly a typical case of “Unconscious Inspiration”=

Getting inspired Unconsciously….

This post is the first in a series of posts

I will present projects designed according to the principles of “Conscious Inspiration” and “Unconscious Inspiration” for you to judge….

“Epilog”

I can’t finish this post with bad taste….

So what do you think about  MVRDV’s  Mirador residential building shown in the next image?

This apartment block is probably inspired from Le Corbusier’s Unite D’habitation ….is this an example of “Conscious Inspiration” or “Unconscious Inspiration” ?…… for you to judge….

Note for example, MVRDV’s innovative approach to the “communal terrace”….

Le Corbusier…. Do we need more evidence that he is the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century?

https://archidialog.com/2012/10/08/

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”…. 

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.
