Two quotations from the REXs’ site, describing the firm’s Approach :

1. Architects have retreated from the accountability (and productivity) of Master Builders to the safety (and impotence) of stylists.

2. The media sells simple, catchy ideas; it reduces teams to individuals and their collaborative work to genius sketches. The proliferation of this false notion of “starchitecture” diminishes the real teamwork that drives celebrated architecture.

 Very exciting …. REX Describe two of the reasons why I suggest to implement “Conscious Inspiration”….

 Availability of the “ architecture  information” probably affects the planning processes and thinking of the modern architecture  Office. I hope the planning process that I like to call “Conscious Inspiration” Will give architects the tools to cope with the abundance of information, and  Create quality and creative architecture….

La Tourette – “Conscious Inspiration” 1

Posted in public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2010 by eliinbar

Here are two examples of “conscious inspiration”  inspired  by  La Tourette:
1. “Typological inspiration”  the  focus  is on the  “Form”
2. “Practical Inspiration” The  focus  is on “functionality”.

1/“Typological inspiration”

2/  “Practical Inspiration”

In this case, the method of introducing light into the building.
