From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012– Trends…. I’m not saying I have a problem with them….

 I was taught at the School of Architecture….Architects have  special responsibility….Our mistakes remain even after we will not  longer be here …. 

See what gave rise, from a 10 minutes visit to one of the numerous internet architecture magazines….Designboom

All of the following projects represent an architectural trend ,shown in my previous posts ….

What did I learn from this post?….

Architectural trends were always been recognized…….. There is nothing new under the sun….

The Network effect changed dramatically the availability of architects inspiration sources

Architectural trends today are characterized by quotations….Personal expression and creativity, get a small place

I’m not saying I have a problem with this…. on the contrary….

I think we should institutionalize a method that helps young architects get inspired consciously from existing buildings…”it will lead us architects and designers to high quality and creative architecture”. 

I direct The “Conscious Inspiration Method” to be oriented to deal with this challenge. 

What do you think?

Check the NEW CONSCIOUS  INSPIRATION  PAGE

in my Facebook

“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:knowledgetools and invention.

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….

Tools”: develop tools to analyze buildings and “Understand” them,tools that will cope with the abundance of architectural information…tools that encourage your planning process….tools matching your skills and generating your creative process….

(You are invited to visit earlier posts of mine showing leading architects tools…. )

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.

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 – Zaha Hadid – “house as a metaphor”

In previous posts I introduced the concept of “house as a metaphor“(“Visual House“) 
Here is another example of “Conscious Inspiration
Zaha Hadid in the River Side project is among the first that gave a unique interpretation to the Idea of the “house as a metaphor

A Source of inspiration can be also a metaphor – the” Visual House“

The “Conscious Inspiration” signs:

1. All buildings, in this post, deal with The Notion of theVisual House”

2. The buildings are designed in a unique simplicity of Prism-shaped elements.

3. The buildings design deal with “Weightlessness,
“Levitation” and “Balancing”.

4. Significant source of inspiration is Kormelings’ Starting Tower in Slochteren,Netherland

The “Homeless Roof”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , on July 22, 2010 by eliinbar

from eliinbars’ Sketchbook

I recognize an interesting trend recently.

The “visual House” has been modified

Perhaps inspired by Herzog de Meuron‘s project from  1995 ( Casa Frohlich , Stuttgart – Germany).

I call this new approach the Homeless roof
