Description

A look at how nature serves as a source of inspiration for contemporary architecture.

Nature has always furnished stimulating ideas for the design of architecture. This collection of buildings, both vernacular and by important architects, from houses to hotels, schools, and commercial and industrial projects, reveals conscious and unconscious visual analogies with the plant world and explains why natural forms make good models for structure.

Reviews
