Battleship-Inspired Office Buildings

1200 Intrepid is in Philadelphia's Historic Navy Yard

— November 9, 2016 — Art & Design
The Bjarke Ingels Group, better known in the architecture community as BIG, has designed 1200 Intrepid, a new building slated to go up in Philadelphia's historic Navy Yard. Taking inspiration from the marine connotations of its location, 1200 Intrepid's design draws directly from the battleships that still frequent the harbor only blocks away.

The battleship inspiration can be seen in the shape of 1200 Intrepid. The aggressive, swooping prows of battleships are perhaps their most distinctive feature, and the BIG building mimics this shape on its south-facing side. Seen from above, that southern wall is perfectly flat. However, at ground level, the surface of the wall dips in a concave arc, giving the total building that same aggressive, forward-leaning stance that is so striking on warships.
Trend Themes
1. Navy Yard-inspired Architecture - Designing buildings that draw inspiration from naval elements can create visually striking and unique structures.
2. Battleship-inspired Design - Incorporating the aggressive, swooping shape of battleships into architectural designs can add a sense of dynamism and boldness.
3. Harnessing Contextual Inspiration - Taking cues from the surrounding environment, such as historical landmarks or natural landscapes, can lead to innovative and contextually relevant architectural designs.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture and Design - The field of architecture and design can explore the possibilities of creating unique and visually striking buildings by integrating thematic inspirations.
2. Real Estate Development - Real estate developers can leverage battleship-inspired designs to create standout properties that attract attention and stand out in the market.
3. Tourism and Hospitality - Hotels and tourist attractions in unique locations can incorporate naval-inspired elements to create memorable experiences and differentiate themselves from competitors.
