From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Zaha hadid and Le Corbusier Playing musical chairs

Le Corbusier wrote in his book “Towards an Architecture” in 1923 : ”Architecture is not making any Longer simple shapes

 

Twenty seven years later Le Corbusier designed Notre Dame du Haut chapel. A Floor plan that is characterized by complex shapes ….a style identified today with Zaha Hadid’s Architecture…..

France 1950-54

And this is a  Zaha hadid’s  typical floor plan … Note the morphological similarity to le Corbusier’s Notre Dame du Haut chapel floor plan.

From Eliinbar’s sketch book 2012-Zaha hadid & Le Corbusier  morphological similarity = “Conscious Inspiration”

Forty years later Zaha hadid designs the Aquatics Centre for 2012 Summer Olympics  in London

Notice the Aquatics Centre’s roof …It is supported by concrete columns that make it appear to float above the rest of the space

And this is the roof designed by Le Corbusier for the Notre Dame du Haut chapel

Notice the structural design of the roof was inspired by the engineering of airfoils.

The building’s roof is supported by concrete columns that make it appear to float above the rest of the space

“Epilog”:

Zaha Hadid’s Aquatics Centre roof…. under construction

Notice the Aquatics Centre’s roof …It is supported by concrete columns that make it appear to float above the rest of the space.

Villa Adriana  was the Source of  inspiration for le corbusier,when he designed  the RonChamp Chapel  in 1950.

And the next image, are le Corbusier’s sketches from Villa Adriana

Probably Zaha Hadid’s inspiration source for the Aquatics Centre for 2012 Summer Olympics London , is  Le Corbusier’s RonChamp ,Chapel roof.

Each generation and its inspiration sources

The principle is the same…. talented architects of all times are not intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.

Here are two relevant examples ,of talented architects that are inspired from Le Corbusier’s RonChamp Chapel – roof. … For you to judge

The next image is Louis Kahn’s  First Unitarian Church  roof designed and built  1959-1969,  inspired from Le corbusier’s  Ron Champ Chapel .

Le Corbusier – “Green button Inspiration”

Posted in buildings with tags , , , , , , on December 27, 2010 by eliinbar

What do you think about this house? 

It seems like a good idea that re-use it self. 

Is this another example of “Conscious Inspiration”?   

The source is undoubtedly Le Corbusiers’ Ronchamp – Chapel….

Louis Kahn Architect

First Unitarian Church and School

Rochester  NY  1959-1969

Louis Kahn   Designed an built the First Unitarian Church and School  in Rochester NY from 1959  to 1969 

Kahn’s  earliest known sketches show that he was working with a centralized concept.

His Desire was to create a single unified structure appropriate to Unitarianism…. 

Another influence of past solutions to church planning was Rudolf Wittkower’s Architectural Principles in the age of Humanism which illustrated centrally planned Renaissance churches. 

Did Ronchamp chapel was another source of inspiration for Louis Kahn?

Note  the concrete heavy flouting roof  and the distribution of the indirect day light coming from hidden windows.

Le Corbusier Ronchamp Chapel “Sacred Inspiraion”

Posted in public buildings with tags , , , , , , on November 28, 2010 by eliinbar

Here is another example of “conscious inspiration”….

Relevant citations of Corbusier:

Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.


Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage.

Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light.
