Constructive natural forms and architectural structures

Applied geometry serves as an intermediary between living nature and architecture. Studies of natural forms are aimed at revealing the regularities of formation of the structure of bioforms and establishing the ways of their geometric modeling, figuring out the degree of their rationality from the architectural point of view. For example, the presence of analogies in the ways of formation of constructive natural forms and architectural structures helps to establish the best options for breaking curvilinear forms into standard elements with a minimum number of standard sizes. At the level of elementary forms the language of nature is similar to...
