Steven Holl ,Toyo Ito, Zaha Hadid and Tadao Ando  “Sponge Concept “

This post is entirely “Conscious Inspiration

Sometimes it’s interesting to go back to old posts ,and see what happened since

This time I will tell the story of posts from 2010-2012

It turns out that many of the most esteemed architects, use the method of

Conscious Inspiration

And their projects are no less creative or unique than their sources of inspiration … for you to judge.

Enough for introductions, let’s tell the story

In 2012 I uploaded the following post, following two

previous posts from 2010

The posts present a new architectural trend, led by architect Steven Holl

The next sketch  was made by Steven Holl in 2002 , for a building designed in Nanjing , China .

I called this trend, the “Sponge-concept

What is the “Sponge Concept”?

Buildings that are basically perforated boxes, characterized by morphology of a sponge

Now we understand why Toyo Ito ,Zaha Hadid and Tadao Ando are participating in the festival

They apply the method of “Conscious Inspiration

Eliinbar's Sketches- Bjarke Ingels's –(BIG) St.Petersburg pier

From  eliinbar’s sketch book 2012  Bjarke Ingels’s “Multiplying architecture strategy”- The Rolling wave buildings

Interview with Franz West, Commenting on whether his sculptures are adapted to the environment:

Do you consider them autonomous? They don’t seem burdened by site-specificity.
They are absolutely autonomous.

They are always a little awkward. They don’t fit easily.
It’s the autonomy.

And I thought to myself that only Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects, were inspired by E’mile Aillaud cloud towers…. Apparently not, it happens again here “in my backyard”

Cloud Buildings In my backyard

From Eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2018– E’mile Aillaud cloud towers….  “in my backyard”

This post is number four

In a series of posts, I call “In my backyard

In which I present for your review, buildings that I found “in my backyard” and photographed them for you.

All buildings are within 60 km from home

The choice to photograph these buildings was not random

They reminded me of forgotten posts

For you to judge

In the 1970s

A French architect named E’mile Aillaud ,planned residential towers not far from Paris. He called them “Cloud Towers“.

Tours Nuage (Cloud Towers) E’mile Aillaud Architect, Nanterre (north-west of the center of Paris) 1973-1981

Years later architects like MAD Architects and Zaha Hadid, took the idea of Cloud Towers into more creative directions.

You are invited to visit a post from 2013 ,in which I presented projects by Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects.

Inspiration from existing buildings = Conscious Inspiration….”If You’re Gonna Do It, Do It Right”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 31, 2013 by eliinbar

From  Eliinbar Sketchbook 2013  “If You’re Gonna Do It, Do It Right”

Todays  post presents for the eighth time, my “Conscious Inspiration” project…. 100 Conscious projects in 200 days

100projects in 200 days that we can easily identify their Inspiration sources

These projects are published in ARCHDAILY ,the world’s most visited architecture website

The inspiration sources for the 100 projects ,are not nature in full bloom ,or wonderful music, not exciting prose

Their inspiration sources are ,existing buildings

Existing  buildings , that we are exposed to in countless websites, design brochures and  books ,everybody  is talking about this phenomenon these days , it is  called The availability of information

This is Steven Holl’s Sliced Porosity Block project In  Chengdu, Sichuan ,China 2007-2012

Notice  Steven Holl’s  scale strategy 

The irregular shape of the towers, the openings and the changes in scale, add a sense of human proportions and individuality to the huge mass of the buildings

The dominant regular grid of the façade,accentuated by dominant expression of the diagonal reinforcement beams , reinforce the sense of human scale

Now let’s examine QLAB architects design strategy, as reflected in the NTFSH Gymnasium Published in Archdaily 26 MAY 2013 ,and shown in the next image

NTFSH Gymnasium / QLAB architects  project year 2013 Tainan, Taiwan

NTFSH Gymnasium , project year 2013 Tainan, Taiwan

Published in Archdaily 26 MAY 2013

QLAB’s NTFSH Gymnasium is characterized by a basic morphological box with A dominant regular grid on the façade, accentuated by diagonal reinforcement beams

  Does the NTFSH Gymnasium  represents the principles of Conscious Inspiration  

My personal opinion…. not enough

From Eliinbar's Sketchbook 2013  "If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right"

From  Eliinbar Sketchbook 2013  “If You’re Gonna Do It, Do It Right

While  Steven Hall’s “Sliced ​​Porosity Block” is characterized by openings and changes in scale, that add a sense of human proportions and individuality , QLAB’s NTFSH Gymnasium ,is characterized by a basic morphological box 

 The effort expended on the NTFSH Gymnasium’s façades, is relevant?

Let’s see what are Steven Holl‘s inspiration Sources….

This is Steven Holl’s competition entry for the American Library expansion in Berlin1984

Interesting enough,  Steven Holl was not the only one that showed interest in

The “Floating Buildings Trend

Here is Zaha Hadid’s Expo Centre exhibition halls and residential tower

In Moscow, published in 2007

and this is my sketch describing the evolution of the

Floating buildings trend

 Eliinbar Sketch book 2012 – the“Floating buildings trend

From Eliinbar Sketchbook 2012 – the“Floating buildings trend

And finally, as I keep repeating it in many of my blog entries

knowledge is the foundation for all designing process

This is Le Corbusier‘s  La Tourette Monastery from 1953-1960

notice Le Corbusier’s  La Tourette dominant building wing,raised through a series of pillars

Le Corbusier's  La Tourette Monastery from 1953-1960

Steven Holl is a well-known fan of Le Corbusier

   Le Corbusier‘s  La Tourette , is probably the “Inspiration building” for  Steven Holl‘s  American Library expansion from 1984

 More than 25 years later, Le Corbusier‘s  La Tourette,is probably once more, the “Inspiration building” for the campbell-sports-center

Today post presents for the fifth time, my New “Conscious Inspiration” project…. 100 Conscious projects in 200 days

100projects in 200 days, that we can easily identify their inspiration sources

These projects are published in ARCHDAILY ,the world’s most visited architecture website

The inspiration sources for the 100 projects ,are not nature in full bloom ,or wonderful music,nor exciting prose

Their inspiration sources are existing buildings

You might remember the post-modernism trend in the 80s

Sources of inspiration for this style/trend were classical buildings, Nothing else

 ? What does it indicates about us

It indicates that there is an expanding phenomenon and we can not ignore it

Architects are inspired by existing buildings as a method

 ? So what’s the problem 

The problem is that some of us are experiencing difficulty getting inspired from existing buildings

Sometimes the result of this process, looks more likeCopy-paste” rather than conscious inspiration

 ? So how to get inspired consciously from existing buildings

 

 

 ? The Conscious Inspiration Method ,how it works

First step:  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

Second step: develop Conscious Inspiration personal tools = Codex Rules

Third step: the Inspiration Source. Don’t be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings

Step Four: realize your design idea ,your invention

Now that we are familiar with the four steps of the Conscious Inspiration Method, let’s learn how to implement this  method in daily life

But first we must define the challenges facing us

Here are the five “HOWS” of the Conscious Inspiration Method

A. How to filter out relevant knowledge from the Web?…. with abundance of information

 ? B. How to develop your own vision

  C.  How to choose the right “Inspiration Sources” ?  that empowers your vision

? D.  How to develop your own personal design tools

 E.  How to use your inspiration sources as the “Planning Process Generator”?  and to design high quality creative architecture

 

In conclusion

I believe that the natural development of architecture design is based on inspiration techniques ….I call them  Codex Rules

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

Get inspired consciously from existing buildings, and you will experience a unique design process that will serve your creative desires

Finally two examples of buildings published  in ARCHDAILY for you to judge
