Plant architecture

The book “Plant architecture: plants as part of the general evolutionary phenomenon of building” refers to the certainly less noticed activity of plants in the sense of realizing the most demanding spatial, form and functional solutions in the structure of the body, which are the result of obeying the laws of nature.

These solutions are compared with numerous solutions of human architecture throughout the history of construction, warning about the conditionality of architectural achievements by the same laws. The constructions of plant bodies are the result of physical laws, i.e. the action of forces (statics and dynamics) equally as they should be respected by the construction of architectural works.

In this book, the author analyzes the justification of comparing the structure and form of plant bodies and architectural creations, and points to the application of numerous aesthetic models from natural creations in architectural creativity. The book directs the reader to a completely new and original way of observing the construction process, which is a necessary consequence of physical laws in all forms of the apparent world. As confirmation of this thesis, numerous examples from the world of plants and architecture are cited and an unusual connection between them is revealed.
