Written by a cross-disciplinary core of authors from Europe, Asia and America, this anthology comprises articles and images that consider the use of nature for diverse design approaches. Nature has rendered poetic potential to stimulate, as a metaphor, the design process. From formal, conceptual, geometrical to literal engagements, the scope of potential correlations between nature and design is as far reaching as the human imagination.
