Architectural Design of Bionic Structure and Biomimetic Materials
After a long evolution and natural selection, the creatures in the nature mostly have a graceful shape, reasonable structure and unique function. The architects have already got inspiration devised many beautiful and practical architecture from these creatures. This paper will compare some bionic architectural structure and material with the creatures in the nature to clarify a bionic structure, the principle and application of bionic material, so as to better understand the design connotation of biomimetic architecture for further development, and to provide the reference.
