Biomorphic Architecture bases its shape on human and animal forms, and this type of shape is inspired from mother nature herself. Nowadays this architecture is becoming increasingly popular due to improvements in technology and construction but it’s been a long time since this “style” started. Bio-organic architecture has its roots in the works of leading figures in the Art Nouveau movement.
There are no straight lines in Nature, just free-forms. This is a building system that affords structural design the ability to disappear into the wilderness so completely that it is not just bio-mimicry but symbiosis.
