"The relationship between nature and architecture has been a topic of interest for years. Biomimicry is fast becoming a motivating force in sustainable architecture and architecture in general. Biomimicry is not only about form but also functionality, materiality, structure efficiency, zero waste systems, water usage, energy, thermal environment etc. As we move to a more ecological age, our buildings should be more sensitive to our surroundings and we as architects must change the way we think about design. Goal of this thesis is to translate biological adoptions into architectural solutions. Our transition from industrial age to an ecological age should force us to advance."
