Morphogenesis III – Sculpture by Addé 2018
Nature is a formidable architect, from the simplest creatures to much sophisticated ones, many species are builders, amazing builders.
Not only fauna, but flora is shrewdly structured, and yes, it is all mathematics, just like the Universe.
Then, human kind has been building since its quite early stage.
For what we know, it started with precarious, seasonal shelters until hunter-gatherers eventually settled down and built permanent constructions.
From then to now, architecture, although inventive and diverse, is based on the same principles: verticals, horizontals, and ways to connect them with heterogeneous materials.
