A DISCOURSE ON THE APPLICATION OF BIOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES IN BUILDING DESIGN
AbstractThis paper elaborated on a variety of reasons for the use of biological principles in building context over time. A particular accent was placed on position of biological systems within the contemporary concepts of sustainability, circularity, resilience, and regeneration. Existing design barriers were identified and discussed, and the currently available ways to overcome them were outlined. Conclusively, several general steps towards a more comprehensive future application of biological principles in building design were suggested.
