Eilouti, Buthayna. "Biomimetically Correct," in ArchNet-IJAR: International Journal of Architectural Research, vol. 4, issues 2/3 (2010).
A non-formalistic approach to architectural design processing that shifts focus from form to functional satisfaction, contextual fitting and environmental solutions is developed and described. It is based on an interdisciplinary application of concepts of biomimetics on design generation. The theoretical approach is applied as a project that is assigned for architectural design students in digital studio settings. The approach application results and findings are reported and discussed. Reflections about the approach as well as its associated project development and implementation seem to encourage the addition of biomimetics to architects’ toolkit. As such, the framework may function as a template of innovative solutions and guidance for contextual integrity.
