BIG- Bjarke Ingels’s Group “Mountain Strategy” or the strategy of the“Self inspiration”

From  Eliinbar’s sketch book  2012– BIG’s “Mountain Strategy”

Inspiration sketch Gallery (ISG) by Eli Inbar

Thanks to “A Daily Dose of Architecture “who was my inspiration for this post

I introduced in previous Posts of mine, the possibility that gifted architects multiply their architecture designs …. for example :  SANAA multiplying architecture consciously or Daniel Libeskind Cristal Buildings.

In this post I will show some examples of Bjarke Ingels Group – BIG’s, “Self inspiration” .

Mountain Strategy” = Buildings with dominant mountain morphology

I am aware that the “Mountain Strategy” is a morphology used by other architects….

Usually been used by other architects to:

1. Increase The exposure of the building to a unique view (It is common in hotels located next to the sea)

2. Increase the exposure of the building to solar radiation (Common in cold northern countries)

3. Increase the number of terraces that are attached to apartments. (Common in Mediterranean countries) 

And more ….

As I showed in  previous  post of mine

BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

is a master in applying the  “Conscious inspiration method

For example…. BIG designed the “Amagerforbraending  Waste Treatment Plant” according to their very common “Mountain Strategy” ,but they added a twist ….they took advantage of the slope  …. and made use of it as a ski run …. (See The Amagerforbraending  Waste Treatment Plant shown in the next image) 

 The Amagerforbraending Waste Treatment Plant  is a good example , representing  a building designed according to  the “Conscious inspiration method”…

For you to judge….

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

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.

Be inspired consciously  from existing building, will generate a unique design process that serves our creative desires….

Once we develop our tools, it will lead us to high quality and creative architecture.

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012-Daniel Libeskind’s inspiration Sources?

I introduced  in previous Posts of mine,the possibility that gifted architects multiply their architecture designs …. for example :  SANAA multiplying architecture consciously or Daniel Libeskind Cristal Buildings.

In this Post I will check the possibility that gifted architects get Inspired from each other….

Here are three examples ….  These are Daniel Libeskind’s inspiration sources?

Bjarke Ingels Group – BIG…. “Pragmatic utopian architecture or “Conscious Inspiration” Architecture

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2012 by eliinbar

Bjarke Ingels is a another successful graduate from Rem Koolhaas’s school ,the Office of Metropolitan Architecture ,OMA.

BIG ( Bjarke Ingels Groop) is a appreciated  firm that wins architecture competitions, on a regular base, all over the world.

Bjarke Ingels Design philosophy is very pragmatic:

Architecture has been dominated by two opposing extremes Eccentric curiosities” andboring boxes

Bjarke Ingels believes that there is a “third way” a “pragmatic utopian architecture”or as I understand it “Conscious Inspiration Architecture

In This post I will try to demonstrate why I think  BIG’s architecture is based on the principles of “conscious inspiration

1. Le Corbusier’s “raising Ramp”

BiG’s Cultural Center in Denmark

From  eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012

2. “Extrovert inspiration”

3. “The slice effect”

5.“The Green Lego Towers”

BIG’s Lego Towers 2007

 MVRDV – Dwellings Liuzhou, China 2007

What did I learned from this post?

1.“conscious inspiration” is a pragmatic method that can lead us architects to be a successful firm.

2. “Eccentric curiosities” andboring boxesis out pragmatic utopian architectureis In.

3.pragmatic utopian architectureis designing according to the principles of 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 toolsit will lead us to high quality and creative architecture”.

A warm recommendation…. Locate  presentations showing  BIG’s Planning process (tools) in YouTube

Here is one I like ….

Daniel Libeskind , Coop Himmelb(l)au & Iakov Georgievich Chernikhov – so that is how “Conscious Inspiration” works?

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 9, 2012 by eliinbar

Are  Iakov Chernikhov’s, constructivist designs, the Inspiration Sources for two of the leading deconstructivist architects of the 21 century?

Iakov Chernikhov was a constructivist architect and graphic designer. He lived from 1889 to 1951.

He published books with his innovative constructivist architectural design in Leningrad between 1927 and 1933  (See the pictures below)

Epilogue

What are Constructivist teaching methods? (“Conscious Inspiration Method”)

 1. Constructivist teaching theoretical framework holds that learning always builds upon knowledge that we already know.

 2. Constructivist learning theory says that all knowledge is constructed from a base of prior knowledge.

 3. Constructivists suggest that learning is more effective when we are actively engaged in the learning process.

 4. We learn how to learn, by giving the training to take initiative from our own learning experiences.

Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 – Architecture – The Sculpted decade

New Year it is time for summations….


The last decade is by far the most sculptural decade in recent years.


Here is a brief overview of the typical types of sculptural
buildings.


You are invited to add your own ideas…. 

In my next posts I will give a close look into the sources of inspiration of the various types of sculptural buildings.

Daniel Libeskind’s Inspiration Sources & “The Crystal Buildings”

Inspiration sketch Gallery (ISG) by Eli Inbar

In This Post I will share with you some of Daniel Libskind’s “Inspiration Sources

The unique design of the Jewish Museum in Berlin

Is the result of Libeskind‘s inspirations sources. 

Libeskind, a musician himself, took inspiration from music and considered the museum the final act of Arnold Schoenberg’s unfinished opera.

Moses und Aron . Walter Benjamin’s One Way Street’s 60 sections determined the number of sections that comprise the museum’s zigzag section

Daniel Libeskind Architect

the Jewish Museum

Berlin,Germany 1988-1999

      

Libeskind’s inspiration source when planning his first “Crystal Building” = The Royal Ontario Museum, was the museum’s mineral collection.

What were Libeskind’s, inspiration sources   when planning the next four “Crystal Buildings”?

What did I learn from this post?

Architects often invent or choose their characteristics “Tool Box” somewhere in their career.

A “Tool Box” Can be an architecture style or an individual unique interpretation.

For axemple:

1.Deconstructivism Architecture, (Daniel Libskind Architect).

2.Postmodenism Architecture, (Michael Graves Architect)

3.Brutalism Architecture ,(Paul Rudolph Architect)

Is an Architecture Style can be the Architect’s  “Inspiration Sources”?
