There is an interest to recognize the existence of trends, and understand their origins

From time to time I like to examine, the hottest trends in architecture

 Visit my previous post  Origami Envelopes Trend

From  Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012 - the inspiration sources of the “Origami Envelopes Trend”

From  Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012 – the inspiration sources of the Origami Envelopes Trend

Today’s post is about “Leaning Buildings“, here are few examples for you to judge

 Is the leaning tower of Pisa shown in the next image,their inspiration source

the Pisa tower

the Pisa tower reminds me a small discovery from a forgotten post

The French architect  Emile Aillaud describes in his writings that his source of inspiration for 3 office buildings in LA Defense (near Paris)  was the Piazza Dei Miracoli  with the Tower of Pisa

This is  Emile Aillaud’s  sketch for the 3 office buildings in LA Defense that were never built

 Eliinbar Sketchbook 2012 - OMA and Rem Koolhaas’s parallel life between the theory and practice of architecture

From Eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012 – OMA and Rem Koolhaas’ parallel life between the theory and practice of architecture

In every direction I check….eventually all roads lead to OMA.

This post Is about one of the most Inspirational architecture firms working today….  MVRDV.

Maas and Van Rijs, two of MVRDV founding members, worked at OMA.

The next image is a housing complex designed by MVRDV in 1999…It’s called the FLYING VILLAGE (Villa Voladora –In Vienna, Austria)

Notice the Main characteristics of this structure….

A three dimension curved slab with a dominant green terrace

Five years later (2004) the contemporary architectural firm SANAA, design the Rolex Learning Center, at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

Notice the three dimension curved slab with a dominant green terrace….

It is hard to ignore the morphological similarity between MVRDV’s and SANAA’s  projects.

But the story begins long before….

What are the origins of this architecture approach?

What is the justification for the huge financial effort required to build the  Rolex Learning Center?

What is the added value that the user gets for this effort?

Well in this blog I do not deal with these questions….

The questions that concern me are….

What were the sources of inspiration that eventually generated these structures?

I think that “Inspiration” or “Copy Paste” are the most dominant phenomenon of the 21st century among architects.

 Most likely the “availability of information” enables the existence of the phenomenon.

 The abundance of information in the Web affects us all…. I present it every week here ….We saw more than once ….The differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “copy paste” are not so big….

 And that is exactly what I intend to clarify and understand in this blog.

 I believe that the natural development of architecture design is based on inspiration techniques ….I call them “Codex Rules”.

 –

And finally I strive to develop a method.

 A method that will help architects and designers to cope with this phenomenon…. At this point in time, I call it 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 tools =“Codex Rules”, it will lead us to high quality and creative architecture.

Let’s see how the “Conscious Inspiration” works for SANAA….

“knowledge”

Conscious Inspiration” is first of all the understanding of the importance of “knowledge”…. as many said, and wrote before knowledge is the foundation for all designing process. We architects and designers are obliged to be informed about everything that was designed in the past and on a daily basis….

The buildings Presented in the next images is in my opinion, the “Knowledge”, that was the inspiration base for The Rolex Learning Center

Oscar Niemeyer once said You need to find an original way to think and to be informed about everything daily“. 

 To illustrate to you that he knows something about architecture

 I recommend you watch the following video showing a new building designed by OSCAR NIEMEYER

In this post we will learn about MVRDV’s Inspiration sources …. Or maybe it’s a “self fulfilling prophecy”….

For you to judge….

In the next image a building designed by Rem Koolhaas in Bangkok, Thailand in 1996 .

The building is designed according to the “Stacking Diagram design Strategy”

Rem Koolhaas & OMA Architects

The Hyperbuilding , A self-contained city for 120,000 inhabitants with housing, education, culture, welfare, medical facilities, amusement, industry, retail .

 Bangkok, Thailand  1996

How does the “Stacking Diagram design Strategy” works? 

First step: definition of size and shape of the spaces in accordance with the program.

Second step: designing the building as a “stacking Diagram” emphasizing the program.

 Just a Minute….

 13 years ago MVRDV won a world wide competition to design Berlin Voids housing project, a vertical block marking the void left by the Berlin Wall….a three-dimensional puzzle of individual apartments.

I can estimate

that the Berlin Voids housing project designed by MVRDV in early 90s is the source of inspiration for the “Stacking Diagram design Strategy”? 

– 

Well…Is MVRDV’s Berlin Voids housing project designed in the 90’s is MVRDV’s “self fulfilling prophecy“?

Finally, it is hard to ignore another two dominant planning strategies,highlighted in MVRDV’s  Jakarta’s  vertical city building ….

I call them “Multi Style Buildings Trend” and the “Revolving/Rotated floors buildings”

– 

“Multi Style Buildings Trend”:   Buildings designed by one architect divided into several parts. Each part of the building is characterized by a different architectural style.( materials, different morphology, the building envelope, the building openings etc.)

For more information about the Multi Style Buildings Trend”visit my post –The New “Multi Style BuildingsTrend” – Herzog-De-Meuron & Jean Nouvel & Dominique Perrault & Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas  https://archidialog.com/2012/02/19/

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 five “HOWS” of the “Conscious Inspiration Method”

The ultimate inspiration methodology:

1. How to filter out relevant Knowledge from the Web with abundance of information?

2. How to develop your own Vision?

3. How to choose the right “Inspiration Sources” that empowers your Vision?

4. How to develop your personal Design tools?

5. How to use your Inspiration Sources as the “Planning Process Generator”, and design high quality and creative architecture?

“Conscious Inspiration” is practicing and acquiring tools to improve observation and differentiation of details.

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.

Le Corbusier…. Do we need more evidence that he is the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century?

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2012 by eliinbar

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier, the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century.

This Post is about a dominant morphology that was first applied by Le Corbusirer at the 50th.,…. 

I call it the “sloping cylinder

The next image is Le Corbusier’s Palace of the Assembly  in Chandigarh

Notice the dominant sloping cylinder on the roof of Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh.

Mario Botta  is recognized as a “Conscious Inspiration Follower” of   le Corbusier,

You are invited to visit a relevant  previous post of mine….

The main idea shown in the post, is presented in the next sketch

Eliinbar’s Sketches 2010 Le Corbusier the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century

Mario Botta was one of the first architects who were inspired from the dominant morphology of the Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh.

Following this inspiration…. Mario Botta designed some  significant buildings in the 20th century

Here are two of Mario Botta’s  most significant buildings inspired by Le Corbusier’s Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh

The short story starts in the 50 with Le Corbusier’s  Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh…. It continues with Mario Botta and his dominant buildings designed in the 80 s and 90 s ,and reaches its peak with Rem Koolhaas’s  Prada Pavilion designed  in the beginning of the 21 century

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012– Le Corbusier the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century

A short Comment….

Certainly  Le Corbusier is the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects, in the last century.

At this point of my journey, I want to distinguish between two planning processes….

Conscious Inspiration and Unconscious Inspiration as it sometimes called “Copy Paste

Unfortunately Le Corbusier is also the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects who their planning processes is more like the “Unconscious inspiration”……..

I intend in my future posts to give examples and explain the significance of the “Conscious Inspiration Method” for us architects….

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.

A “small talk” about “Conscious inspiration”

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.

Be inspired consciously from existing buildings, and you will experience a unique design process that will serve your creative desires….

But first we must develop our “TOOLS” or in other words, our” Codex rules”….

Le Corbusier Vis Zaha Hadid…. and “Google Trends” is always right

Posted in public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2012 by eliinbar

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 -Le corbusier’s “Geometry” strategy

Let’s find out what was le Corbusier’s message, when he wrote in his book “Towards an Architecture” in 1923

Today’s architects are concerned from the geometric components of buildings surfaces. The great problems of the modern building age will be resolved by the “Geometry”.

This Is Le Corbusier’s  La Tourette Monastery designed and built 1953-1957

Is this building designed according to Le Corbusier’s “Geometry” strategy?

Le Corbusier Architect

La Tourette Monastery

  Lyon  France 1953-1957

What is certain ….This building was and will be a source of inspiration for many generations of architects still to come….

See the following sketch … Le Corbusier’s  La Tourette Monastery is on the left

And this Is Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI Museum in Rome ….. Most likely this is not a building designed according to Le Corbusier’s “Geometry” strategy

Zaha Hadid Architects

MAXXI Museum , Rome

 Italy 1999-2009

This building is undoubtedly the inspiration source of a large number of

Buildings designed these days….

So what do you think?

Who is the preferred choice for inspiration to architects today?

Zaha Hadid or Le Corbusier?

The truth is hard to answer….

For that invented Google…. the “Google Trends”

 –

Google Trends  is a” Tool” to compare the world’s interest in different topics. You can see how often the topics you are interested searched on Google over time.

This is a “Google Trends” graph that compares the world’s interest in Zaha Hadid and Le Corbusier.

At least ….according to “Google Trends” Le Corbusier (in Red) takes it all….
