In some instances, architects looked to nature to solve structural
problems, like creating an earthquake-proof bridge by mimicking the long
roots of a type of grass known for stabilising riverbanks. Other
examples show how nature provides artistic inspiration, like the famous
buildings designed by Frank Gehry that evoke the beauty of moving fish.
The incredible structures in this book prove that nature and
architecture are perfect partners.
Sidebar biographies tell us more about these famous architects who have used nature to spectacular effect in their designs.
