Paper Title:
Bionics and Building Structure
  Abstract

After billions of years of evolution, the form, structure, function, behavior and other aspects of living things in the nature have been optimized, designers imitate this advantages to make the bionics melt into structure, then biomimetic structure came to being. On the basis of some examples, this paper establishes two different classification methods of biomimetic structure--according to different imitating objects and different imitating aims, and presents the conception of form-finding bionics, takes tree structure as an example to analyze.
