Bionic Architecture: Learning from Nature

AUTHOR: Maria Rosa Cervera   Javier Pioz   
PUBLISHED BY: By Architect   October 2016
COVER: Paperback
PAGES: 240
LANGUAGE: English
PRICE: $79.95

Borrowing from nature is nothing new, artists and designers have been looking to the natural world for inspiration for centuries. For some, this has been purely on an aesthetic level, for a select few on a functional level, fewer still combine these considerations to produce designs that mimic both the forms and properties of natural structures. After all, many biological organisms are masters of sustainability, producing strong viable life-forms while conserving resources. That is perhaps why no field is better suited to reap the rewards of this research than architecture. Examining natural growth patterns, cooperative systems and fractal geometry to gain insight into its applications, the authors provide a system for reinterpreting architecture for the 21st Century. Contains numerous photographic details, 3D macros and conceptual plans.
