Daniel Libeskind’s Inspiration Sources & “The Crystal Buildings”

Inspiration sketch Gallery (ISG) by Eli Inbar

In This Post I will share with you some of Daniel Libskind’s “Inspiration Sources

The unique design of the Jewish Museum in Berlin

Is the result of Libeskind‘s inspirations sources. 

Libeskind, a musician himself, took inspiration from music and considered the museum the final act of Arnold Schoenberg’s unfinished opera.

Moses und Aron . Walter Benjamin’s One Way Street’s 60 sections determined the number of sections that comprise the museum’s zigzag section

Libeskind’s inspiration source when planning his first “Crystal Building” = The Royal Ontario Museum, was the museum’s mineral collection.

What did I learn from this post?

Architects often invent or choose their characteristics “Tool Box” somewhere in their career.

A “Tool Box” Can be an architecture style or an individual unique interpretation.

For axemple:

1.Deconstructivism Architecture, (Daniel Libskind Architect).

2.Postmodenism Architecture, (Michael Graves Architect)

3.Brutalism Architecture ,(Paul Rudolph Architect)

Is an Architecture Style can be the Architect’s  “Inspiration Sources”?

Zaha Hadid and the “Sculpture Buildings Trend”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 3, 2011 by eliinbar

This post is about a contemporary trend ….buildings that get inspired from the three dimensional artwork…. Sculpture. 

Zaha Hadid Architect ,is in my opinion , leading the “Sculpted buildings trend, today .

In addition, I will show some interesting recent projects , dealing with the “Sculpted buildings trend”.

 –

Sculpture:

Sculpture is three-dimensional artwork created by shaping. Materials may be worked by removal such as carving; or they may be assembled such as by welding, hardened such as by firing, or molded or cast. Surface decoration such as paint may be applied.

Zaha Hadid Architect   

Guggenheim Hermitage

Vilnius, Lithuania , Competition 2008

Here’s some information from Zaha Hadid Architects about the Guggenheim Hermitage museum :

The museums sculptural volume is designed along Zaha Hadid’s characteristic conceptual terms of fluidity, velocity and lightness. The building appears like a mystical object floating above the extensive artificial landscape strip, seemingly defying gravity by exposing dramatic undercuts towards the surrounding entrance plazas. Large activated green fields flow around the museums sculptural mass, underlining its enigmatic presence with curvilinear lines echoing the elongated contours of the building. Contrasting with the vertical business district skyline it is a manifestation of Vilnius’ new cultural significance.

Hainburg, Austria  2008-2011

Here’s some information from Coop Himmelb(l)au about the Martin Luther Church :

The design language has been developed from the shape of the curved roof of a neighboring Romanesque ossuary – the geometry of this century-old building is translated into a form, in line with the times, via today’s digital instruments

In pursuit after Zaha Hadid’s inspiration Sources 4-“Tree of knowledge”

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2011 by eliinbar

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 , Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources

In this post I present MVRDV’s Sloterpark Swimming Pool and Zaha Hadid’s Pierres Vivesbuilding , housing three government departments .

Zaha Hadid is today the most widely publicized and influential architect by Google test

It’s not the formal similarity, why I pose the two projects, and I don’t have the intention to insinuate that Zaha Hadid copied from another. 

My goal is to encourage the developing of “Codex rules“for a new architectural planning process that I call  Conscious Inspiration.

From Zaha Hadid’s Site:

The Pierres Vives Building “ Housing three government department emerging as a “tree of Knowledge” three institutions unified within a single envelope

The spectacular design of the building is inspired by the idea of a “tree of knowledge” as an organizational diagram for the entire project. 

Zaha Hadid uses the concept of trunk and tree to organize and divide up the complexity of the administrative citadel as a whole.

Zaha Hadid is looking for a programming idea to combine three institutions unified within a single envelope.

She is inspired by the metaphor of the tree of Knowledge

How it affect Zaha Hadid’s design?

Are metaphors her Inspiration Sources?

Here’s some more information from Zaha Hadid Architects about  her Inspiration Sources  for the mixed-use building  in Budapest:

“A Structure that extends Budapest’s rich architectural heritage, is inherently “in Context”, yet also marks a radical new approach

Thin-shell structures are light weight constructions using shell elements. These elements are typically curved and are assembled to large structures. Typical applications are fuselages of aeroplanes, boat hulls and roof structures in some buildings.

A thin shell is defined as a shell with a thickness which is small compared to its other dimensions and in which deformations are not large compared to thickness. A primary difference between a shell structure and a plate structure is that, in the unstressed state, the shell structure has curvature as opposed to plates structures which are flat.

Here’s some more information from Zaha Hadid Architects about  her Inspiration Sources

The architectural expression for the new performing arts centre has been inspired by the magnificent ancient city of Petra explains Zaha Hadid. “Petra is an astonishing example of the wonderful interplay between architecture and nature, as well as the intricate complexity and elegance of natural forms – the rose-colored mountain walls have been eroded, carved and polished to reveal the astonishing strata of sedimentation. We have applied these principles to articulate the public spaces within the centre, with eroded interior surfaces that extend into the public plaza in front of the building.”

Here’s some more information from Zaha Hadid Architects about the “Stone Towers” :

 “Inspired by the patterns and textures of ancient Egyptian stonework, the north and south facades of each tower will be covered with recesses and protrusions emphasising the effects of light and shadow on the surfaces”

“Ancient Egyptian stonework incorporates a vast array of patterns and textures that, when illuminated by the intense sunlight of the region, creates animated displays of light and shadow”
