Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This book seeks to discover the architectural potential of biological structures as they can be found in nature. 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 are shown.

Reprinted 2011.

Includes bibliographical references.

Documents a series of design experiments on structural prototypes derived from biological systems in order to reveal mechanical and structural analogs of a spatial character.
