Well illustrated with some really beautiful images and the author's charming hand drawn diagrams. Biomimicry in architecture is maturing as an approach and this book is like a basic manual, coaching on technologies and current products. It also stretched my thinking on using systemic biomimimetic approaches and I often found myself stunned and take aback by the scale of the possibilities and also about how easy it is to find a place for in more conventional approaches. But make no mistake, overall this book is about something which could amount to a radical revision of the standard approach to making architecture.
The basic structure of the book is:
Foreword: Dame Ellen Macarthur
2. Materials & manufacturing
3. Zero waste systems
4. Water management
5. Thermal environment control
6. What can biology teach us about light?
7. Power & buildings
8. Synthesis on cities and the future
Conclusion: What does biomimicry mean for people?
