Daniel Libeskind’s Inspiration Sources & “The Crystal Buildings”

Inspiration sketch Gallery (ISG) by Eli Inbar

In This Post I will share with you some of Daniel Libskind’s “Inspiration Sources

The unique design of the Jewish Museum in Berlin

Is the result of Libeskind‘s inspirations sources. 

Libeskind, a musician himself, took inspiration from music and considered the museum the final act of Arnold Schoenberg’s unfinished opera.

Moses und Aron . Walter Benjamin’s One Way Street’s 60 sections determined the number of sections that comprise the museum’s zigzag section

Libeskind’s inspiration source when planning his first “Crystal Building” = The Royal Ontario Museum, was the museum’s mineral collection.

What did I learn from this post?

Architects often invent or choose their characteristics “Tool Box” somewhere in their career.

A “Tool Box” Can be an architecture style or an individual unique interpretation.

For axemple:

1.Deconstructivism Architecture, (Daniel Libskind Architect).

2.Postmodenism Architecture, (Michael Graves Architect)

3.Brutalism Architecture ,(Paul Rudolph Architect)

Is an Architecture Style can be the Architect’s  “Inspiration Sources”?

In pursuit after Zaha Hadid’s inspiration Sources 4-“Tree of knowledge”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 , Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources

In this post I present MVRDV’s Sloterpark Swimming Pool and Zaha Hadid’s Pierres Vivesbuilding , housing three government departments .

Zaha Hadid is today the most widely publicized and influential architect by Google test

It’s not the formal similarity, why I pose the two projects, and I don’t have the intention to insinuate that Zaha Hadid copied from another. 

My goal is to encourage the developing of “Codex rules“for a new architectural planning process that I call  Conscious Inspiration.

From Zaha Hadid’s Site:

The Pierres Vives Building “ Housing three government department emerging as a “tree of Knowledge” three institutions unified within a single envelope

The spectacular design of the building is inspired by the idea of a “tree of knowledge” as an organizational diagram for the entire project. 

Zaha Hadid uses the concept of trunk and tree to organize and divide up the complexity of the administrative citadel as a whole.


Eliinbar sketches 2011, Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources

Zaha Hadid is looking for a programming idea to combine three institutions unified within a single envelope.

She is inspired by the metaphor of the tree of Knowledge

How it affect Zaha Hadid’s design?

Are metaphors her Inspiration Sources?
