Eliinbar Sketches 2013  -  Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects Inspired by Construction Methods

Eliinbar’s Sketches 2013  –  Zaha Hadid and MAD Architects, Inspired by Construction Methods

This blog

examines the inspiration sources of contemporary architectural projects

 ….I put a virtual mirror  reflecting processes of conscious and unconscious inspiration among Architects

….and you judge

 But my challenge is not over yet

….If my “mirror” reflects the reality correctly

Then is needed a change in architecture profession training

….And I will explane

.You probably noticed that the differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “Copy paste” are rather vague

And there is a consensus that

 Copy-paste” is disastrous for the architectural profession”

We all know that the basis for all architectural design , is the unique site on which the building is built

?so how can we copy buildings

For that I strive to develope a responsive training method for architects

.I call it the Conscious Inspiration Method

.The “Conscious Inspiration Method” is  learning to be inspired consciously from existing buildings

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our designing tools =“Codex Rules”, it will lead us to high quality creative architecture

.

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

In my next posts ,with the aid of the big master Le Corbusier I will show some Interesting  inspiration techniques

….Enough with the theory…. lets place the mirror

In this post I will put my virtual “mirror” in front of two architectural projects among 5 finalist for ARCHDAILY building of the year awards 2012

The first example demonstrates inspiration from  construction methods

Note the dominant non-uniformity morphology of this buildings

both buildings look radically different but  shaire the same envelopes strategy

peripheral Curved rings

windows of the same size and shape ,surrounding the building

this is a perfect example of “Conscious Inspiration”….

A “short talk” about “Conscious Inspiration”  January 2013

Inspiration” or “Copy Paste” are the most dominant phenomenon of the 21st century among architects.

Most likely , the “availability of information” enables the existence of the phenomenon.

The abundance of information in the Web affects us all…. I present it every week in my blog, accompanied by my explanation sketches.

We saw more than once, differences between “Conscious Inspiration” and “copy paste” are not so big….

With this challenge, the “Conscious inspiration Method” wants to cope .

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

I strive to develop a method.

A method that will help architects and designers to cope with this phenomenon, At this point in time, I call it the “Conscious Inspiration Method” ….

With the methodology of “conscious Inspiration”, we don’t need to be intimidated to get inspired from relevant buildings.  Once we develop our tools =“Codex Rules”, it will lead us to high quality creative architecture.

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 Fourrealize your design idea (your invention).

Five “HOWS” of the “Conscious Inspiration Method

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

2. How to develop your own vision?

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

4. How to develop your 0wn personal design tools?

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

From Eliinbar’s sketchbook 2013 -Zaha Hadid Inspiration Sources

From time to time I come across a building that explains everything

Recently been completed the construction of Zaha Hadid‘s Galaxy Soho

Beijing China

?What are the sources of inspiration for this building

 

I can think about two sources of inspiration for the Zaha Hadid‘s Galaxy Soho.

Frank Lloyd Write‘s Guggenheim Museum’s is  Zaha Hadid‘s   Source of Knowledge

.”And Foster‘s London City Hall is the “Source of Inspiration

 

Each one of them has a different role in generating Zaha Hadid‘s design for the Galaxy Soho

For You to judge

It is characterized by varying shapes and sizes,

But built with  repetitive elements (for example, the coverings of the horizontal curving  elements )

I could not pass out the following phenomenon
Recently published in archdaily
Is this example is more of “Conscious Inspiration” or more of “Copy Paste”?

Recently were published in ARCHIDAILY ,two new buildings designed by Steven Holl, the Tianjin Ecocity Ecology and Planning Museums.

One of those buildings is characterized by a unique morphology …. It is called the “Sponge Concept”.

Notice the morphological similarity, both buildings are perforated boxes, characterized by morphology of a sponge, designed according to the “Sponge Concept” – strategy.

But the previous story,  is maybe least interesting …. What do you think about this story?

Before the Steven Holl ‘s Tianjin Ecocity Ecology and Planning Museums were built , One can see ,that Steve Holl’s well known sketches are already the source of inspiration for Leading architects.

  All of the next buildings are perforated boxes, characterized by morphology of a sponge, designed according to the “Sponge Concept” .

From  Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Zaha Hadid’s ….”basic inspiration generators”….

Zaha Hadid Architect

Guangzhou Opera House

in Guangdong province, China 2011

 –

The following texts were published In DEZEEN  …. Concerning Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources when designing the Guangzhou Opera House 

1.“The Guangzhou Opera House design has been particularly influenced by river valleys – and the way in which they are transformed by erosion. 

2.“Shaped to resemble two pebbles on the bank of the Pearl River 

3.“The design evolved from the concepts of a natural landscape and the fascinating interplay between architecture and nature; engaging with the principles of erosion, geology and topography”.

 –

The Inspiration sources published in DEZEEN seem convincing….

 Those are probably Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources….

 But to design this building, Zaha Hadid had to have other sources of inspiration ….

I call them….”basic inspiration generators

Let’s check what were Zaha Hadid‘s….”basic inspiration generators“….

The first basic inspiration generator

 Notice the exterior shell structure envelope of the Opera House.

 The shell structure wraps a large number of functions. It is also characterized by transparency that allows penetration of natural light.

Zaha Hadid’s  Guangzhou Opera House 2011

View from inside

In the next image you can see a typical cross section showing the exterior shell structure envelope of the Opera House wraps a large number of functions.

This design strategy has been developed in the 60 by Buckminster Fuller.

The Montreal Biosphère in Canada  Expo 1967, designed by Buckminster Fuller ….shown in the following image ,is a prominent example of this approach….

Buckminster Fuller

The Montreal Biosphère

Notice the shell Structure that contains a large number of functions and characterized by transparency that allows penetration of natural light.

And this is an image of the Guangzhou Opera House under construction

Zaha Hadid Architect Guangzhou Opera House in Guangdong province, China 2011

From  Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – Zaha Hadid’s ….”basic inspiration generators”….

Note the similarity between the construction method of Buckminster Fuller’s Montreal Biosphère and Zaha Hadid’s Guangzhou Opera House

 In both buildings, the construction method allows a flexible and transparent shell.

The second basic inspiration generator

Notice Guangzhou Opera House typical floor plan, shown in the next image.

Zaha Hadid designs a building with effective floor plans.

She does not give up her desire for creativity and uniqueness

She implements the ”Envelopes Design Strategy” and uses her architect skills to realize her architectural vision… a”sculptural buildings

 

 

The ”Envelopes Design Strategy”, has been developed in the 80 of the last century by Frank Gehry.

 

The Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank Gehry in 1987-2003 ….shown in the following image ,is a prominent example of this approach….

Note the similarity between the typical floor plans of Frank Gehry’s Disney Concert Hall and Zaha Hadid’s Guangzhou Opera House

 Both buildings are designed with effective floor plans…. Notice the rectangular dominant shapes in the center of the ground floors

 Both buildings envelops are unique and creative and realize Zaha hadid’s and Frank Gehry’s architectural vision…”sculptural buildings”

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.

 

The five “HOWS” of the “Conscious Inspiration Method”

The ultimate inspiration methodology:

1. How to filter out relevant Knowledge from the Web with abundance of information?

2. How to develop your own Vision?

3. How to choose the right “Inspiration Sources” that empowers your Vision?

4. How to develop your personal Design tools?

5. How to use your Inspiration Sources as the “Planning Process Generator”, and design high quality and creative architecture?

“Conscious Inspiration” is practicing and acquiring tools to improve observation and differentiation of details.

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.

Inspiration, where do we find it? It’s right here…. let’s learn how to search for it….

From time to time I come across a building that explains everything….

A building designed according to the guiding principles of “conscious inspiration

Neil M. Denari Architects in collaboration with Taiwanese architectural firm Fei and Cheng Associates are not intimidated to get inspired from “relevant buildings.

The five “HOWS” of the “Conscious Inspiration Method”

The ultimate inspiration methodology

1. How to filter out relevant Knowledge from the Web with abundance of information?

2. How to develop your own Vision?

3. How to choose the right “Inspiration Sources” that empowers your Vision?

4. How to develop your personal Design tools?

5. How to use your Inspiration Sources as the “Planning Process Generator”, and design high quality and creative architecture?

“Conscious Inspiration” is practicing and acquiring tools to improve observation and differentiation of details.

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 will serve 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….

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.
