eliinbar’s sketches 2014-Branching design or in other words the “Bird nest” typology

 eliinbar’s sketches 2014 – Branching design or in other words the “Bird nest” typology

Today’s post will be the third of a series, inquiring whether one of the leading architectural firms in the world, OMA of Rem Koolhaas, is a popular Inspiration Source for architects today.

Today’s main configuration of a building designed by Oma and Rem Koolhass is a prominent source of inspiration , the branching design or in other words the “bird nest” typology .

THE MAIN CONFIGURATION

Branching design

The branching design is based on Toyo Ito’s and Cecil Balmond’s

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion (2002) in London shown in the next image.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion (2002) in London

A few words about Cecil Balmond:

Cecil Balmond sees his work as an open-ended visual application of theory, following the principle that “structure as conceptual rigour is architecture

Balmond’s research is about complexity and non-linear organization ,he investigates mathematical concepts and their influence on natural forms and structures

A few words about Toyo Ito:

Toyo Ito received the Royal Gold Medal at the RIBA on 15 February 2006

Jack Pringle, RIBA President described Toyo Ito’s work :.

Toyo Ito has been an inspiration for generations of architects worldwide since his work started to receive international acclaim in the 1970s. For thirty years he has been a leading figure in architecture and I am delighted that he has accepted the Royal Gold Medal.

THE ORIGINS

(Inspiration Sources)

It is hard to say for certain ..but I think that the following projects are definitely good candidates to be the ORIGINS sources of inspiration for the BRANCHING design
and the BIRD NEST typology

BRANCHING design

In 2001,architect Toyo Ito designed Tods’ Omotesando Store in Tokyo.

A unique organic design that was called the “Tree Building

Tods’ Omotesando Store in Tokyo 2002-2004

and it’s Inspiration source, the Zelkova trees shown in the next image  : (Tods’ Store is located in Omotesandō who is a Zelkova tree-lined avenue located in Shibuya and Minato,Tokyo)

04-shade-trees

Toyo Ito about Tods’ Omotesando Store in Tokyo (From  HOUSE VARIETY) :

we enclosed the site with a wall that gives the impression of a row Zelkova trees  The facade of criss-crossed concrete braces reinterprets the silhouettes of the trees on the Omotesandō. This exterior surface serves as both graphic pattern and structural system

Our various studies started with the question, “How can we escape the conventional notion of a wall structure?” In other words, we were seeking a way to avoid transparent openings in an opaque volume. Instead of distinguishing transparency from opaqueness, we were seeking a new method that would simultaneously define and unite them – we were attempting to relate all the lines (columns), surfaces (walls), and openings in an innovative way. Our studies suddenly moved in a different direction after formulating the question: “Shouldn’t it be possible to create a surface as structure that directly expresses the flow of force, so long as it is formed as a structural diagram drawn as a pattern of thick lines on a flat surface?”

what did i learn from this post?

As in any field that deals with  creation and invention, the people engaged in it are divided into two groups.

The first group is very small, they have the skills that allow them to innovate Big time.

Most of us belong to the second group, we get inspiration from the first group.

I do not think there is a problem with that….

The big questions are:

Do we know how to  be  inspired in a conscious way?

Do we know how to choose our source of inspiration in a way that enhances our buildings?

Do we copy and paste, or insist to add our invention?

What are the tools needed to improve the realization of the three previous questions?

This blog examines the

 inspiration sources

 of contemporary architectural projects

 I put a virtual

 mirror  

 reflecting processes of

conscious and

unconscious inspiration among Architects

and you judge

 But my challenge is not over yet

If my

mirror

 reflects the reality correctly

Then is needed a change in architecture profession training

And I will explane

You probably noticed that the differences between

Conscious Inspiration” and “Copy paste

are rather vague

And there is a consensus that

 Copy-paste is disastrous for the architectural profession

We all know that the basis for all architectural design , is the uniquesite

 on which the building is built

so how can we copy buildings?

For that I strive to develope a responsive training method for architects

I call it the

 Conscious Inspiration Method

The “Conscious Inspiration Method” is  learning to be inspired  consciously  from existing buildings

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our designing tools =“Codex Rules”, it will lead us to high quality creative architecture

.

I believe that the natural development of architecture design is based on 

inspiration techniques

I call them

Codex Rules

In my next posts ,I will show some Interesting  inspiration techniques

Are OMA and Herzog de Meuron the inspiration source for the WAN awards winners for 2012 ?

Let’s see how the “Conscious Inspiration Method   works for this building….

“But first, Let’s learn a few things about “Conscious Inspiration

The designing method I call “Conscious Inspiration” is a process formed from three main phases:  “knowledge”, DesigningTools = “Codex Rules” and  “Invention

Knowledge :as many said, and wrote before, 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….

Designing Tools”=“Codex Rules”: develop tools to analyze buildings and “Understand” them, Tools that will help us cope with the abundance of architectural information….

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

“Knowledge”

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.

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”?

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.)

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.

What did I learn From This post?

1. Once more we saw that the “Conscious Inspiration Method” is practiced intuitively by talented architects all over the world.

2. It Seems that the “Conscious Inspiration Method” does not prejudice the creativity of architects….Perhaps even enhances It.

3. The “Conscious Inspiration Method” is not limited to a certain place, cultural or environmental conditions.

4. Inspiration Sources are varied…. architects are inspired from different periods and different places.

5. An inspiration source can be a “design strategy” or a “unique morphology”, What really matters, is the architect skills to develop and make use of his appropriate “design-tools”.

 

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.

MVRDV and the “Pixilated BuildingsTrend”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 16, 2012 by eliinbar

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – the“Pixilated Buildings Trend”

It all started somewhere at  the 60th when the young Safdie designed the three-dimensional, prefabricated units community and housing complex built as a pavilion for Expo 67 the first significant Pixilated Building ever built….

Safdie did not work in a vacuum….

In the late 60th.architects like Kisho Kurokawa  designed the Nakagin Capsule Tower.

Moshe Safdie Architect

units community and housing complex

built as a pavilion for Expo 67 in  Montreal, Canada

Recently I encountered in the WEB repeated examples of Pixilated Buildings

Is It a new trend?

Is Safdi’s pavilion for Expo 67, their inspiration source?

For you to judge….

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

My New meditation corner:

What did I learn from this post?

A Source of inspiration can be also a metaphor – the” Visual House“

more buildings inspired by the “Visual House”
