Biomimetics for Architecture & Design: Nature - Analogies - by Göran Pohl,Werner Nachtigall

By Göran Pohl,Werner Nachtigall

This ebook presents the readers with a well timed advisor to the applying of biomimetic ideas in structure and engineering layout. because of a mixed attempt via across the world well-known gurus, the biologist Werner Nachtigall and the architect Göran Pohl, the e-book describes the rules which are used to check nature and expertise, and even as it provides unique motives and examples exhibiting how biology can be utilized as a resource of concept and “translated” in development and architectural ideas (biomimicry). even if nature can't be at once copied, the residing international gives you architects and engineers with a wealth of analogues and inspirations for his or her personal artistic designs. yet how can research of normal entities provide upward thrust to complex and sustainable layout? through reporting at the most up-to-date bionic layout tools and utilizing broad art, the e-book publications readers in the course of the box of nature-inspired structure, providing a rare source for pro architects, engineers, designers and concrete planners, in addition to for college lecturers, researchers and scholars. normal evolution is visible through the ebook as a robust source which can serve structure and layout by means of delivering leading edge, optimum and sustainable solutions.
