From  eliinbar’s sketch book 2012  Bjarke Ingels’s “Multiplying architecture strategy”- The Rolling wave buildings

Interview with Franz West, Commenting on whether his sculptures are adapted to the environment:

Do you consider them autonomous? They don’t seem burdened by site-specificity.
They are absolutely autonomous.

They are always a little awkward. They don’t fit easily.
It’s the autonomy.

Zaha Hadid & Ben van Berkel in the Chicago’s Millennium Park

Posted in public buildings with tags , , , , , , on May 27, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s sketchbook 2011

After meeting with Anish Kapoor’s works, who designed his famous “Cloud Gate” in the Chicago Millennium Park .

I learned more about the Park. ..

This structure designed in 2009 by the architect

Ben van Berkel  next to Zaha Hadid’s pavilion, in the MillenniumPark,

Is surprisingly similar in his formality

to a Zaha Hadid’s Project, Nordpark Cable Railway

designed and built from 2004 to 2007 In Austria.

Here are the projects for you to judge.

Tell us what you think

Ben van Berkel Architect

I try to understand why the architect who designed the pavilion in the Millennium Park, with a program open to interpretations, chooses not to use the tools of “Conscious Inspiration”

Conscious inspiration” is not a new process.

Talented architects are using it on a daily basis….

Training the young generation of architects according to the principles of conscious inspiration,

will lead us architects and designers to high quality and creative architecture….
