From  eliinbar’s sketch book 2010 – The evolution of the Steven Holl’s “Sponge Concept”

Somewhere in the 90’, Steven Holl studied a new morphological design notion…..The “Menger Sponge” 

The next image is a concept model showing the ““Menger Sponge

And this is  Steven Holl’s  Sarphatistraat offices

It seems as if  Steven Holl’s exterior design, was inspired by the “Menger sponge”….Notice the largest square openings in the center of each facade.

One Year later Steven Holl designed the Simmons Hall and implemented his “Sponge Concept” design strategy ….

Steven Holl’s Sketch showing a typical Simmons hall’s vertical section 1999-2002

Note the vertical shapeless spaces in Steven Holl’s sketch, colored in white.

A reasonable assumption ….Steve Holl’s inspiration source is

The unique structure of a “sponge”

And the next image, is Steven Holl‘s Simmons hall in MIT Cambridge USA 1999-2002

Notice the inspiration effect of the “Menger Sponge” on Steven Holl’s Facades..

Notice also the external expression of the “sponge Concept “…. the “amoeba shaped” openings.

Two years later Steven Holl designed a building for Nanning ,China  and once more he implements the “Sponge Concept” design strategy ….

The “Homeless Roof”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , on July 22, 2010 by eliinbar

from eliinbars’ Sketchbook

I recognize an interesting trend recently.

The “visual House” has been modified

Perhaps inspired by Herzog de Meuron‘s project from  1995 ( Casa Frohlich , Stuttgart – Germany).

I call this new approach the Homeless roof

Zaha Hadid Architect _ The Opus Commercial Towers _ Dubai _ 2007

Zaha Hadid Architect _ King Abdullah II House of Culture and Art _ Amman _ 2010

Eliinbar sketches 2010

Zaha Hadid‘s King Abdullah II House of Culture and Art , Is a perfect match between Steven Holl’s  “Sponge Concept” morphology and the unique uses of the building.

Therefore, I think ,it is a good example of “CONSCIOUS INSPIRATION”.
