Genius of Biome describes the strategies and designs adopted by living organisms found in the temperate broadleaf forest biome. It describes the biological principles and patterns common to organisms and ecosystems within this biome. From this biology, designers can extract principles to inspire innovation and to identify specific criteria for place-based design for their projects.
Bio-Structural Analogues in Architecture 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.
