The most important next steps in architectural advancements will be found in nanotechnologies, materiomics,9 metamaterials, and biosmart materials’ ability to change properties (thermal, luminous, acoustic) or exchange energy (phase change) depending on external environmental conditions. Materials science, together with emergent technologies, computational and parametric design, find common ground in the complexity of nature and the processes governing it.

Global patterns of precipitation are influenced by cycles of air circulation. Areas along the equator receive the most moisture, while areas at around 30° latitude north and south are the driest on Earth. This is due to the differing densities of warm and cold air. Warm air is less dense than cold air, causing warm air to rise. indd 33 13/12/12 12:21 PM 34 o 90 N North Pole o 60 N o 30 N o 0 N Equator o 30 S o 60 S o 90 S South Pole A major driver of global climate patterns is the way in which air circulates latitudinally.

In his Historia Animalium he describes many zoological phenomena. In the ancients’ architecture, nature’s forms are used symbolically and metaphysically. Nature has always been something to observe, represent, respect, and worship. However, with the major exception of Leonardo da Vinci, it was not until the 19th century that thinkers made the leap from “mere” observation to application. Leonardo could be considered the first biomimetic designer. With the Age of Exploration, and increasingly after the discovery of the Americas (1492), an influx of European naturalists documented their field observations in the form of drawings replicating nature.
