From  eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012 – Wang Shu’s inspiration Sources

The Chinese architect Wang Shu, has been awarded the 2012 Pritzker Architecture Prize.

I must confess….
I was unfamiliar with the work of  Shu Wang,

In this post I present a building designed by Shu Wang….The new Art Academy in Hangzhou  China.

It is really hard to ignore the  inspiration sources of this building….there is a strong sense that Le Corbusier is still among us…. working in China….

The design strategy adopted by Shu Wang In China Is a combination of modernist architectural citations along with awareness to local materials and local construction methods …

It reminds me Le Corbusier’s approach. while planning Chandigarh  in India, in the 1950s.

Here are Selected photos of the New Art Academy Hangzhou designed by Wang Shu,  and his possible sources of inspiration….   For you to judge….

What did I learn from this post?

1. Wang Shu actually designs his buildings according to the principles of the conscious inspiration method.

2. He chooses wisely Le Corbusier to be his main inspiration source….(And others).
3. He developed a planning strategy refers to his projects surrounding environment..

4. He consciously cites his sources of inspiration.

and finally he is awarded the 2012 Pritzker Architecture Prize .

Le Corbusier & SANAA “walls with holes”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , on February 11, 2011 by eliinbar

When searching in google the expression “walls with holes” it refers to numerous technical solutions for holes and cracks in walls

When architects talk about “walls with holes” they mean walls with Windows”.

 

It is quite a while that I trace the inspiration source to SANAA‘s

Zollverein School of Management & Design in Essen

SANNA’s Zollverein School of Management & Design in Essen with its unusual way of opening holes (windows) in its walls has an impressive presence in the Web.  You are invited to enter a previous post of mine, where I present some buildings that are inspired by SANNA’s “holes effect”

Is the original and unexpected solution of Corbusier, to the social Housing Unité d ‘Habitation  Rezéin   in Nantes  is “ the source” of inspiration to SANNA’s  Zollverein School of Management & Design?
