How about this currently popular trend?  

Plastelina Buildings 

One of the leading architects of this wave  is Zaha Hadid 

Here are some examples….

Planning is an endless dialogue ….

Between place and use

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

The  “Conscious Inspiration” Method,  How it Works?

First step:  the inspiration Source

Second step:   Developing  the Conscious Inspiration tools

Third step:   Realize the design idea

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.

SANAA – Not So Conscious Inspiration

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketch book 2011 – SANAA

Returned after a short vacation….

Here is an example for a “not So Conscious Inspiration”
A new hotel on the border of Italy-Switzerland ,a trendy building ….probably its  source of inspiration is SANAA’s  Zollverein School of Management & Design .

The hotel has identically sized windows on a straight horizontal line, like is common in most hotels .
To get the SANAA’s  impressive Zollverein Schoolof Management window effect, They painted around the windows black squares in different sizes….

(See explanation sketch)

What do you think?
