What is Form Follows Nature?
John Spacey, updated on June 09, 2016
Form follows nature is an architecture and design technique that uses shapes and forms found in nature such as plants, animals, insects, geological and astronomical shapes. Such techniques may achieve highly functional designs or may be purely aesthetic as a means of integrating with natural surroundings. Form follows nature is a central principle of organic architecture along with other principles of sustainable design and natural aesthetics.
