From eliinbar’s sketch book 2012 - the inspiration source of the Origami Envelopes trend

From  Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2012 – the inspiration sources of the “Origami Envelopes Trend”

I have nothing against trends.

There is an interest to recognize the existence of trends, and understand their origins.

From time to time I like to examine, the hottest trends in architecture.

In this post I will examine  the “Origami Envelopes trend”

For more information about the “Origami Envelopes trend”, you are invited to visit my post: Preston Scott Cohen and the “Origami Envelopes trend”

What are the inspiration Sources for the “Origami Envelopes trend”?

I can think about three sources of inspiration for the “Origami Envelopes trend”.

1.The origami traditional Japanese art.

2.Peter Eisenman’s  Max Reinhardts Haus project. from 1992.

3.Preston Scott Cohen’s Tel Aviv Museum –  2003-2010.

Each one of them has a different role in generating the “Origami Envelopes trend”.

Here is a very short video that my youngest son photographed, my daughter edited and the eldest son chose the background music, documenting , the preparation process of a sketch.

They called it “ Sketch is born

Note that you see the video from the viewpoint of my eyes, How did they do it?

Inspiration” or “Copy Paste” are the most dominant phenomenon of the 21st century among architects.

Most likely the “availability of information” enables the existence of the phenomenon.

The abundance of information in the Web affects us all…. I present it every week in my blog, accompanied by my explanation sketches, we saw more than once, the differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “copy paste” are not so big….

And that is exactly what I clarify in my blog.

I believe that the natural development of architecture design is based on inspiration techniques ….I call them “Codex Rules”.

I strive to develop a method.

A method that will help architects and designers to cope with this phenomenon, At this point in time, I call it the “Conscious Inspiration Method” ….

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

The Conscious Inspiration Method‘ ,  How it Works?

First step: “knowledge”, as many said and wrote before; knowledge 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.

Second step:   develop your personal Conscious Inspiration tools=“Codex Rules”.

Third step: the inspiration Source. (Don’t be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings).

Step Four: realize your design idea (your invention).

The five “HOWS” of the “Conscious Inspiration Method

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?

From Eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012 – OMA’s Central Chinese TV Building….”Influences”

Recently I found a Rem Koolhaas twitt related to the Questions I raise in this blog….

Influence is a very unpleasant subject and I deal with it in a maybe irresponsible way, which is to really ignore it.”

Well…. Rem Koolhaas is no doubt one of the influential architects in our time….

Are the Max Reinhardts Haus project designed by Peter Eisenman and the “Arche de la Defense France” designed by Johann Otto von Spreckelsen shown in the next images ….Were OMA and REM KOOLHAAS  inspiration source when they designed the Central Chinese TV Building?

Let’s check if those buildings are more the type of “CONSCIOUS INSPIRATION” or the type of “COPY PASTE”….

Buildings designed according to the principles of “Conscious Inspiration“, are  identified  by means of three principles:

1. You can easily identify the sources of knowledge.

2. There is a clear expression of unique planning tools = ”Codex Rolls”.

3. Stands out, the architect’s Invention.

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.

I invite you to an exciting  journey in search of the inspiration sources of gifted architects.

Journey to understanding the process of architectural creation. At first, an example of a painter:

Claude Gelle’e _ 1654

J.M.W. Turner _ 1814

Pictures were taken from the album of the painter Turner exhibition in Paris.

The exhibition presents paintings by Turner and Other paintings that inspired him.

 

And Occasion of Peter Eisenman’s visit to Israel, here are two examples from the field of architecture :
