Three Towers for La defense- Emile Aillaud Architect-1978

Three Towers  for La defense – France- Emile Aillaud’s sketch-1978

It turns out that there is nothing new “in my backyard”, architects are inspired by existing buildings (or something similar to inspiration) for decades, here are some examples,

for you to judge

You are already familiar to French architect Emile  Aillaud , from my previous post.

In 1978 he prepared a sketch for three towers (a round tower, square tower and triangular tower). The towers were to be built at La Defense near Paris.

But they were never built

So what the hell are the three towers doing “in my backyard”?

And for dessert

Emile Aillaud ,a creative and innovative architect ,does it again.

The next  picture was also taken “in my backyard”.

For years I have passed through this project, and asked myself,

What was the source of inspiration for this “gate”?

Epilogue:

It turns out that the sketches of the three towers, and the gate building, designed by Emil Aillaud, were widely published in the world press of those years.

 

 

 

And I thought to myself that only Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects, were inspired by E’mile Aillaud cloud towers…. Apparently not, it happens again here “in my backyard”

Cloud Buildings In my backyard

From Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2018– E’mile Aillaud cloud towers….  “in my backyard”

This post is number four

In a series of posts, I call “In my backyard

In which I present for your review, buildings that I found “in my backyard” and photographed them for you.

All buildings are within 60 km from home

The choice to photograph these buildings was not random

They reminded me of forgotten posts

For you to judge

In the 1970s

A French architect named E’mile Aillaud ,planned residential towers not far from Paris. He called them “Cloud Towers“.

Years later architects like MAD Architects and Zaha Hadid, took the idea of Cloud Towers into more creative directions.

You are invited to visit a post from 2013 ,in which I presented projects by Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects.

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

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

 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
