J.Mayer H. the ultimate “Conscious Inspiration Architect” 1

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , on May 19, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011-“Conscious Inspiration Architect” 1

In this post I will trace the inspiration sources of Architect J.Mayer H.

 

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

Decodes the “DNA” of his favorite architects….
Implements their “vocabulary” in his projects ….
Adds its own approaches….
Adjust his project to the environment….
and  builds high-quality and original projects….

 

Here is the first example, for you to judge.

In my blog, I juxtapose examples of projects without the intention to insinuate that one architect copied from another, but rather to spur a dialog among architects.

The goal is to encourage an architectural planning process that I like to call Conscious Inspiration

I am obviously not the first to consider this approach:

Le Corbusier mentions in one of his books that his sources of inspiration for the Cathedral of Ron Champ was Villa Adriana at Tivoli. 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. Louis Kahan eventually got his inspiration  to design the  Hurva Synagogue from the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, and Tadao Ando traveled all over Europe to get inspired by existing buildings as a way to train  him self to become an architect..

So far, I have only scratched the surface of this concept, and I am in the beginning of this journey. I believe the journey itself may lead us architects to a more rigorous architectural planning.
