Le Corbusier Ronchamp Chapel “Sacred Inspiraion”

Posted in public buildings with tags , , , , , , on November 28, 2010 by eliinbar

Here is another example of “conscious inspiration”….

Relevant citations of Corbusier:

Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.

Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage.

Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light.

Le Corbusier-Ronchamp Chapel “Conscious Inspiration” 2

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , on November 24, 2010 by eliinbar

Corbusier designed and built the Ronchamp Chapel from 1950 to 1954.

Since then the chapel is a source of inspiration for talented architects.

Here  is another example of Conscious Inspiration….

I can Predict that the Mansilla & Tunon’s Concert Hall was the PRATICAL and TYPOLOGICAL  inspiration for WRNS STUDIO.

The AVALABILITY of architecture INFORMATION is an important  “woorking – tool“.

It helps us to impliment the principles of “Conscious Inspiration”.

3. Typological Inspiration

MVRDV Architects _ Mirador _ Sanchinarro _ Spain

From eliinbar’s sketchbook 2010  -Typological Inspiration




4.  Formal Inspiration

Le Corbusier

 Le palais du Gouverneur


 REX Architects

Vakko Fashion Center

And Power Media Center

From eliinbar’s sketchbook 2010 – Formal Inspiration



Two quotations from the REXs’ site, describing the firm’s Approach :

1. Architects have retreated from the accountability (and productivity) of Master Builders to the safety (and impotence) of stylists.

2. The media sells simple, catchy ideas; it reduces teams to individuals and their collaborative work to genius sketches. The proliferation of this false notion of “starchitecture” diminishes the real teamwork that drives celebrated architecture.

 Very exciting …. REX Describe two of the reasons why I suggest to implement “Conscious Inspiration”….

 Availability of the “ architecture  information” probably affects the planning processes and thinking of the modern architecture  Office. I hope the planning process that I like to call “Conscious Inspiration” Will give architects the tools to cope with the abundance of information, and  Create quality and creative architecture….

At the year 2002MVRDV architects office designed a group of towers for the Donau city  in Vienna. The project was inspired by critical thinking about skyscrapers.

The result was a three dimensional City.

MVRDV’s towers were called the “Kissing Towers”.

At the same year Zaha Hadid designed two “Kissing Towers” for Ground -zero in New- York City. 

Four years later Zaha Hadid designed three towers for Dubai, they were called the “Dancing Towers”.

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

Floor plans can be a Source of inspiration for architects.

We can call these  plans “Generating Plans” …. A floor plan which generates inspiration.

Here are Two examples of “ Conscious inspiration”.

La Tourette floor plans inspired talented architects….

1. The Wall Buildings:

Richard Alan Meier was born in 1934 in Newark New Jersey. Twenty-five years later – after graduating from Cornell University’s Architecture School, and after Cornell, working briefly for SOM – Meier decided that the best mentor he could personally select was Swiss-born architect, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret. Of course, most of us know Jeanneret by the name he gave himself – ‘Le Corbusier‘ a spin on his grandfather’s name that resembled this French word for Raven.To meet the great man, Meier would need to travel to Paris. Once there, he intended to ask Le Corbusier if he could become an intern. And oh, by the way, he would make this request with an attached offer that he believed that Le Corbusier could not refuse – he would work for free.

John Hedjuk profound interest in the fundamental issues of shape, organization,representation, and reciprocity. He argued that the first duty of architecture is to challenge and inspire:At la Tourette Le Corbusier emphasize the hierarchy between the big prier room and small one by putting the Small  one “outside the wall” In the “Wall HouseHedjuk  employs the same  vocabulary of Le Corbusier to explore the relationship between inside and outside  , in a more extreme way than did the Swiss-French master.
