Precedents and Inspiration

I am coming across so many book and Internet pages that have such interesting and inspiring contents, I am going to try and keep a tab on them on this page!

To start with, some inspiration for the Food Sitopia I am currently trying to design.

I love the buildings that surround the site, and I believe all architecture should be contextual and take something from the surroundings. In this instant, the site is next to a boat yard, and some of the surrounding buildings, are timber boarded with pitched roofs. These are some buildings that I have found that have inspired me:

Vitra Haus by Herzog and DeMeuron

Parish Art Museum another building by Herzog and DeMeuron

Solarge Town and Community Building by Arcau

The Barn House by Buro II

I love the timber cladding and the way it continues past the main facade like an echo.
