Inspiration sketch Gallery (ISG) by Eli Inbar

Recently I visited the  Le Corbusier foundation site
It shows all the projects planned and carried out by Le Corbusier

I came across two interesting examples of “Conscious Inspiration” 

The First one you can see in my previous Post

The foundation WEB page: http://www.fondationlecorbusier.fr/corbuweb/morpheus.aspx?sysId=64&sysLanguage=fr-fr&itemPos=1&sysParentId=64&clearQuery=1

 

Here is the second example of “Past Continuous Inspiration”:

Steven Holl Architect   

 Toolenburg-Zuid housing complex Schiphol Netherlands

Competition Project  2001-2002

 

from eliinbar’s Sketch book 2011

The “conscious inspiration” Signs:

1. Both buildings deal with the proportions of a tower

2. Significant source of inspiration is the tree structure (“trunk” and “branches”)

3. The shell of the buildings (walls and floors) takes an expression on the facade.

4. The openings in the shell (Windows) are from “skin” to “skin”

I will show one example in this post  and
the second in the next…. 
 

Le Corbusier and  Pierre Jeanerette Architects  desigend for Nestlé an exhibition pavilion for removable Fair in Paris in 1928. Pierre Jeanneret is mainly in charge of this study and adopts a metal frame covered with sheet metal. The facades and interiors are plate glass or wood sanded.

The Ricola Europe SA Factory and Storage Building in Mulhouse-Brunstatt, France, of 1993 also has distinctive exterior walls that are made of translucent polycarbonate panels, a common industrial building material, which allows light to filter through. Using a silkscreen process, these panels are printed with a repetitive plant motif (based on a photograph by Karl Blossfeldt) that becomes less visible as daylight diminishes and assumes the characters of a more substantial material than polycarbonate.
