Biomimetic Architecture

Biomimetic architecture is a contemporary philosophy of architecture that seeks solutions for sustainability in nature, not by replicating the natural forms, but by understanding the rules governing those forms.

The concept of biomimicry is based on nature that can be learned and extract from it as technical term in their quest for properties in living organisms that can explored from observations and scientific analysis.

Three levels of biomimicry that may be applied to a design problem are typically given as form(organism level), process and ecosystem.

The organism level refers to a specific organism like a plant or animal and may involve mimicking part of or the whole organism.

The second level refers to mimicking behavior, and translating an aspect of how an organism behaves.

The third level is the mimicking of whole ecosystems and the common principles that allow them to successfully function.
