This inspirational book seeks to discover the architectural potential of biological structures as can be found in nature, in the world of seashells, corals, plants and animals. The structures that give biological forms strength, movement, firmness and flexibility are studied, illustrated and used as an inspiration for a huge number of design experiments, of which the thinking, working and final prototyping process is shown in this book.
The book will prove to be a useful textbook resource for teaching and research in architecture, providing a theoretical basis of form, space and structure.
