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.
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.
The author Joseph Lim teaches at the Department of Architecture, School of Design and Environment of the National University of Singapore.
