On one of my visits to Europe, I purchased a booklet documenting systematically, all of  Le Corbusier’s  projects

The booklet is written in German and translated into French

Published by STUDIO PAPERBACK in 1972, The booklet was edited by Willy Boesiger von Herausgegeben

In the back of the booklet is told, that Le Corbusier expressed his desire in 1960 that his works will be published in a booklet at popular prices, so everyone can purchase it

It is no secret that I am a fan of Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier is undoubtedly  the most influential architect (inspiration source) over the past century

Almost 50 years after his death, he remains an important source of inspiration for  leading architects today

When comparing the number of online searches  of Le Corbusier , to leading architects today, Le Corbusier leads by far

In this post I’ll demonstrate Le Corbusier‘s important role ,as a main source of inspiration, for generations of architect

Here is a large number of posts  I posted over the years, that show it

for you to judge

Enjoy

Le Corbusier…. Do we need more evidence that he is the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last   century

Le Corbusier and Steven Holl ….once more they have shown us, consciously…. “God is in the details”

Posted in public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2012 by eliinbar

From  Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 ….“God is in the details”

This is a Doric Temple

Temple of Neptune at Paestum

And this is a typical Doric Column

Notice the  characteristics vertical slots

Le Corbusier in his book “Towards an Architecture” (1923) is fascinated by the small details Of the Parthenon’s Doric Columns.

Here is a quote from le Corbusier’s book “towards an architecture” ( page 178) about extrusion in Doric Columns…..in other words  “the slots”:   

“We recognize the artist plastic by extrusion…. this is the place and time that the engineer is deleted, and the sculpture goes into action

 

Know look at the next image showing a detail from Steven Holl’s Nanjing Museum of Art

Notice the Similarity between Steven Holl’s slots, shown in the image above,, and the slots of the Doric Columns …

Notice the fundamental difference between the tow designs approaches….

The slots In the Doric Columns are vertical … and in Steven Holl’s Nanjing Museum of Art , shown in the next image  …. are Horizontal….

Steven Holl’s Nanjing Museum of Art

horizontal slots

This is a typical case of “Conscious Inspiration” ……..

Steven Holl chooses consciously to be inspired from the vertical Doric Columns’s slots ….

But he implements the slots horizontally ….

 As shown on the lower right of the next image

What did I learn from this post?

1. An architectural detail can be a “Source of Inspiration”.

2. “Conscious inspiration” is also the ability to copy architectural details , and by one small change ….the detail gets a new architectural meaning =“Copy with Invention”….

A “small talk” about “Conscious inspiration”:

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.

Be inspired consciously from existing buildings, and you will experience a unique design process that willserve your creative desires….

But first we must develop our “TOOLS” or in other words, our” Codex rules”…. 

In my previous posts I published numerous “Design Strategies” = “TOOLS” ”= “Codex rules”, of talent and well known architects

You are invited to visit my previous posts and learn more about  ”Codex rules” of leading architects like Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, Morphosis and others

Here is a short list of my previous posts , Presenting the “Design Strategies” = TOOLS” ”= “Codex rules of leading architects

1. Zaha Hadid & Frank Lloyd Wright ….Do aspirations for reality begins in our drawings?

Once we develop our “TOOLS”=”Codex rules”, it will lead us to high quality and creative architecture.

“Conscious Inspiration” the ultimate inspiration methodology

I invite you all to contribute in developing the attitude and tools towards the viability of the “Conscious Inspiration” Method.

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.

Le Corbusier’s “dream and broke”….

Posted in buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 12, 2012 by eliinbar

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier’s dream and broke

Inspiration sketch Gallery (ISG) by Eli Inbar

This post tells Le Corbusier’s tragic story ….

Le Corbusier is a visionary…. outstanding architect ….who left us unique and inspiring projects such as :

1.Ron champ chapelhttps://archidialog.com/2012/07/30/

2.la Tourette Monasteryhttps://archidialog.com/2012/09/09/

3.Unite D’habitation in Marseillehttps://archidialog.com/2011/11/28/

4.Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh- https://archidialog.com/2012/10/08

And other masterpieces….

Certainly Le Corbusier is the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects, in the last century.

Unfortunately Le Corbusier is also the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects who their planning processes is more like the “Unconscious inspiration”= “Copy Paste

And this is how the  story starts….

It all started with Le Corbusier’s Vision of a La Ville Radieus = Radiant city, in the 30s’ of  the last century.

La Ville Radieus promised future of sunshine, fresh air and greenery for city-dwellers.

The design maintained the idea of high-rise housing blocks, free circulation and abundant green spaces…. The blocks of housing were laid out in long lines stepping in and out, and were raised up on pilotis.

They had roof terraces and running tracks on their roofs. La Ville Radieus will be the vertical garden city….

See the next sketches by Le Corbusier showing the  high-rise housing blocks 

And the green, landscaped spaces surrounding them

“The city of tomorrow or the relationship between nature and man will be restored”La Ville Radieus = Radiant city

 sketch by Le Corbusier showing the Radiant city

sketch by Le Corbusier showing the Radiant city, high-rise housing blocks  and the green landscaped spaces surrounding them….

 The next sketch by Le Corbusier, is showing a typical section of  Unite D’habitation =high-rise housing block .

notice it is raised up on pilotis  ,the green landscape spaces surrounding it exactly as  Le Corbusier’s Vision for “La Ville Radieus”  =  “radiant city”

Unite D’habitation in Marseille was the first order Le Corbusier received from the French state starts to be scheduled immediately after the Second World War (1945-46), and was finished in 1952.

1. Le Corbusier’s Unite D’habitation in Marseille comprises 337 apartments arranged over twelve stories.

2. The apartments are suspended on large piloties .that aloude free circulation and abundant green spaces….Sport at the foot of the houses

3. The building also incorporates  with shops ,sporting, medical and educational facilities, a hotel which is open to the public, and a gastronomic restaurant.

4. Its flat roof is designed as a communal terrace with sculptural ventilationstacks, a running track, a shallow paddling pool for children, and an open-air theatre.

5. The building is constructed in béton brut (rough-cast concrete).  

Le Corbusier Architect

Unite D’habitation

 Marseille 1947-1952

Notice the Uniqueness of this building…. 

piloties that aloude free circulation and abundant green spaces,The flat roof designed as a communal terrace, The Internal Street(third floor), with shops, medical and educational facilities….

 Le Corbusier painted the apartments in different colors, to create an identity for each resident..

Now let’s examine how  Le Corbusier vision for the “Radiant City” and the”Unite D’habitation”

Inspired ,architectural projects, being built in our time….

See the next image showing the giant apartment blocks ….at a

renewable area (A “Radiant city”?) near Hong Kong’s airport ,

Built in recent years….

Where are the fresh air and greenery?

Where is the vertical garden city?

Where are the “green, landscaped spaces”?

Is this the “radiant city”Corbusier imagined?

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier’s dream and broke the “radiant City”

And this is a typical “Unite D’habitation” …. Hong Kong’s style….built in recent years.

Where are the raised up pilotis?

Where are the green landscape spaces?

Where are the communal terraces?

Is this the“Unite D’habitation” Corbusier imagined?

 –  

What is remained from le Corbusier’s vision of the “Unite D’habitation”?….

A giant apartment-block with endless repetitive apartments,

Lacking uniqueness….

From   Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier’s dream and broke “Unite D’habitation”.

And this is exactly a typical case of “Unconscious Inspiration”=

Getting inspired Unconsciously….

This post is the first in a series of posts

I will present projects designed according to the principles of “Conscious Inspiration” and “Unconscious Inspiration” for you to judge….

“Epilog”

I can’t finish this post with bad taste….

So what do you think about  MVRDV’s  Mirador residential building shown in the next image?

This apartment block is probably inspired from Le Corbusier’s Unite D’habitation ….is this an example of “Conscious Inspiration” or “Unconscious Inspiration” ?…… for you to judge….

Note for example, MVRDV’s innovative approach to the “communal terrace”….

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Le Corbusier, the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century.

This Post is about a dominant morphology that was first applied by Le Corbusirer at the 50th.,…. 

I call it the “sloping cylinder

The next image is Le Corbusier’s Palace of the Assembly  in Chandigarh

Notice the dominant sloping cylinder on the roof of Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh.

Mario Botta  is recognized as a “Conscious Inspiration Follower” of   le Corbusier,

You are invited to visit a relevant  previous post of mine….

The main idea shown in the post, is presented in the next sketch

Eliinbar’s Sketches 2010 Le Corbusier the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century

Mario Botta was one of the first architects who were inspired from the dominant morphology of the Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh.

Following this inspiration…. Mario Botta designed some  significant buildings in the 20th century

Here are two of Mario Botta’s  most significant buildings inspired by Le Corbusier’s Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh

The short story starts in the 50 with Le Corbusier’s  Palace of the Assembly in Chandigarh…. It continues with Mario Botta and his dominant buildings designed in the 80 s and 90 s ,and reaches its peak with Rem Koolhaas’s  Prada Pavilion designed  in the beginning of the 21 century

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012– Le Corbusier the most significant source of inspiration for architects, in the last century

A short Comment….

Certainly  Le Corbusier is the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects, in the last century.

At this point of my journey, I want to distinguish between two planning processes….

Conscious Inspiration and Unconscious Inspiration as it sometimes called “Copy Paste

Unfortunately Le Corbusier is also the most significant “Source of Inspiration” for architects who their planning processes is more like the “Unconscious inspiration”……..

I intend in my future posts to give examples and explain the significance of the “Conscious Inspiration Method” for us architects….

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.

In this Post we will see….  “Conscious Inspiration” exists at  best “families”

This is the “Conscious Inspiration” short story of two OMA’s graduates: BIG (Bjarke Ingels) and REX (Joshua Prince-Ramus) 

 –

Like in all good families there are mutual influences….

Look at the buildings designed lately by REX and BIG architects in Seoul City , shown in the next images

for you to judge….

published 2012

 

Eliinbar’s Sketches 2012 – BIG’s & REX’s “Stacking Diagram design Strategy”….

It is noticeable for the observer…. most likely, BIG’s and REX’s  source of  inspiration is the “Stacking Diagram design Strategy” developed by the “spiritual fatherRem Koolhaas….but they do it”consciously 

What do I mean by doing it “consciously”?

 The “Conscious Inspiration Method”  is about bringing something of your self.

 REX for example, morphologically gets inspired from theStacking Diagram design Strategy but they add their own Interpretation….They design large inner courtyard garden that apartments will overlook it from within the tower’s upper storeys.

For more information about REX’s  Project R6 go to DEZEEN.COM

You are invited to visit my relevant post, Rem-Koolhaas-they-were-all-my-sons: BIG, MVRDV,REX,FREE-and learn more about the“Inspiration Sources” of BIG and REX  and the “stacking Diagram design Strategy .

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…..

 Le Corbusier

Notre Dame du Haut chapel’s floor plan

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.

“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 .

In My previous posts I introduced El Lissitzky and Yakov Chernikhov, two constructivist architects that published in their books Inspiring images of Modern and Fantasies Architecture (1923-1933)

Apparently they are the source of inspiration for other talented architects.

Here is another Interesting example of “Conscious Inspiration

I recommend everyone who is interested in the work of the constructivist architects, to read Miszellen Blog

“Conscious Inspiration” the ultimate inspiration methodology

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

“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.
