Biomimetic Architecture

Over at Inhabitat, Andrew Michler is featuring a beautiful example of biomimetic architecture, the Times Eureka Pavilion at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Writes Michler:
The pavilion is set amidst a bounty of flowing plants and it takes structural cues from the intricate growing patterns of leaves. Marcus Barnett Landscape Architects created the “veins” out of sustainably harvested spruce and inserted plastic “cells” into pavilion, virtually inserting the visitor into the foliage to experience the textural composition of plants.

This interesting installation will be moved to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew at the end of May.
