In pursuit after Zaha Hadid’s inspiration Sources 4-“Tree of knowledge”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 , Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources

In this post I present MVRDV’s Sloterpark Swimming Pool and Zaha Hadid’s Pierres Vivesbuilding , housing three government departments .

Zaha Hadid is today the most widely publicized and influential architect by Google test

It’s not the formal similarity, why I pose the two projects, and I don’t have the intention to insinuate that Zaha Hadid copied from another. 

My goal is to encourage the developing of “Codex rules“for a new architectural planning process that I call  Conscious Inspiration.

From Zaha Hadid’s Site:

The Pierres Vives Building “ Housing three government department emerging as a “tree of Knowledge” three institutions unified within a single envelope

The spectacular design of the building is inspired by the idea of a “tree of knowledge” as an organizational diagram for the entire project. 

Zaha Hadid uses the concept of trunk and tree to organize and divide up the complexity of the administrative citadel as a whole.

Zaha Hadid is looking for a programming idea to combine three institutions unified within a single envelope.

She is inspired by the metaphor of the tree of Knowledge

How it affect Zaha Hadid’s design?

Are metaphors her Inspiration Sources?

Here’s some more information from Zaha Hadid Architects about  her Inspiration Sources  for the mixed-use building  in Budapest:

“A Structure that extends Budapest’s rich architectural heritage, is inherently “in Context”, yet also marks a radical new approach

Thin-shell structures are light weight constructions using shell elements. These elements are typically curved and are assembled to large structures. Typical applications are fuselages of aeroplanes, boat hulls and roof structures in some buildings.

A thin shell is defined as a shell with a thickness which is small compared to its other dimensions and in which deformations are not large compared to thickness. A primary difference between a shell structure and a plate structure is that, in the unstressed state, the shell structure has curvature as opposed to plates structures which are flat.

Here’s some more information from Zaha Hadid Architects about  her Inspiration Sources

The architectural expression for the new performing arts centre has been inspired by the magnificent ancient city of Petra explains Zaha Hadid. “Petra is an astonishing example of the wonderful interplay between architecture and nature, as well as the intricate complexity and elegance of natural forms – the rose-colored mountain walls have been eroded, carved and polished to reveal the astonishing strata of sedimentation. We have applied these principles to articulate the public spaces within the centre, with eroded interior surfaces that extend into the public plaza in front of the building.”

Here’s some more information from Zaha Hadid Architects about the “Stone Towers” :

 “Inspired by the patterns and textures of ancient Egyptian stonework, the north and south facades of each tower will be covered with recesses and protrusions emphasising the effects of light and shadow on the surfaces”

“Ancient Egyptian stonework incorporates a vast array of patterns and textures that, when illuminated by the intense sunlight of the region, creates animated displays of light and shadow”

Zaha Hadid is very aware to the “Place” she is designing her Buildings.

Zaha Hadid & “house as a metaphor”or the “Visual House“

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , on August 15, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 – Zaha Hadid – “house as a metaphor”

In previous posts I introduced the concept of “house as a metaphor“(“Visual House“) 
Here is another example of “Conscious Inspiration
Zaha Hadid in the River Side project is among the first that gave a unique interpretation to the Idea of the “house as a metaphor

Le Corbusier – five points of Architecture – the Japanese Conscious Inspiration interpretation

Posted in buildings with tags , , , , , , , on August 1, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011

Here is an interesting Conscious Inspiration interpretation of the Japanese architecture practice ON design partners to Le Corbusier’s five points of architecture. 

Japanese architecture practice ON design partners designed a two-storey residential complex for young artists. 

The design elevates the living units to sit above a semi public courtyard which serves as a multifunctional place for exhibitions, work, and socializing.

Kazuyo Sejima+Ryue Nishizawa = SANAA “Multiplying architecture” = ”Conscious Inspiration”?- part one

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 – SANAA / “Multiplying architecture”

Ryue Nishizawa and Kazuyo Sejima are partners in

SANAA, a leading architecture office.

Ryue Nishizawa also owns his private design office.

Here is an Interesting phenomenon…. worth a view….

This is the first example from three, of what I call “Multiplying Architecture” (doubling of architectural ideas)

Is this “Conscious Inspiration” ?

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.

Chicago Tribune Tower competition ,Eliel Saarinen & Cesar Pelli

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 5, 2011 by eliinbar

eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 Chicago Tribune Tower competition

Does Cesar Pelli implements the “Conscious inspiration” method?

It seems that Cesar Pelli starts his designs by making a research…. 

Decodes the “DNA” of his favorite architect (Eliel Saarinen?)

Implements his “vocabulary” ….

Adds its own approaches….

Adjust his project to the environment….

And design high-quality and contemporary towers

– 

Well, this is “Conscious Inspiration”

Before starting, two interesting facts about Cesar Pelli: 

1.At the year 1991, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) listed Pelli among the ten most influential living American architects.

2. He started his career in the new Haven offices of architect Eero Saarinen( the son of Eliel Saarinen-who won the second Place at the Chicago Tribune Tower Competition in 1922).
