3D Design Inspiration: SITELESS: 1001 Building Forms by François Blanciak #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Siteless

Similar to and a bit more eccentric than Operative Design shared earlier — and also, I find, more directly useful as a thumb-through inspiration tool — SITELESS extracts abstracted elements of architectural design from a broad investigation of design-forward cities and isolates them on the page so you can consider them a single “thought” at a time. Extremely useful when looking to push your 3D design in a new direction, either to punch into your model as a detail or to help you reconsider how your elements relate to each other.

3D Design Inspiration: SITELESS: 1001 Building Forms, via Core77:

Not new, but definitely notable: Siteless: 1001 Building Forms, by Architect François Blanciak, was released to the academic architecture community for a little while now, but, after rediscovering it this morning on Jacket Mechanical and Lined and Unlined, we realized it has wide resonance and wanted to share it here.

Though the book is meant as a catalog of siteless building forms, all hand drawn from the same perspective, this book is relevant for formal thinkers at any scale, from sculptors to industrial designers. In particular, we’re wondering how this book might mix with interaction design and tangible interfaces: What would the pigtail towers do when combined with some flex sensors, for example?

If nothing else, the book sidesteps the often opaque written dialogue of architecture (just sayin’) and presents itself visually, accessible to a wide audience.
