SANAA – Not So Conscious Inspiration

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketch book 2011 – SANAA

Returned after a short vacation….

Here is an example for a “not So Conscious Inspiration”
A new hotel on the border of Italy-Switzerland ,a trendy building ….probably its  source of inspiration is SANAA’s  Zollverein School of Management & Design .

The hotel has identically sized windows on a straight horizontal line, like is common in most hotels .
To get the SANAA’s  impressive Zollverein Schoolof Management window effect, They painted around the windows black squares in different sizes….

(See explanation sketch)
