Biologically-Inspired Systems

Biomimetic Research for Architecture and Building Construction

Biological Design and Integrative Structures

Herausgeber: Knippers, Jan, Nickel, Klaus, Speck, Thomas (Eds.)

  • There does no comparable book exist dealing with bio-inspired construction technology and architecture in the depth and width as this book
  • The authors of the book chapters are worldwide renown specialists in their respective field of research and their interdisciplinary cooperation in the various research projects will cause wide interest ranging significantly over the field of bio-inspired construction technology and architecture
  • Bio-inspiration in technology and architecture is of more and more increasing interest as well in research as in application and represents one of the most discussed and fascinating topics as well in translational biology as in architecture and construction technology
  • The “biomimetic promise”, i.e. biomimetic solutions have an especially high potential to be sustainable and ecologically friendly solutions is a widely accepted idea and will be discussed for the first time in detail in some of the chapters of this book. This discussion is also of general interest for the public and in politics
  • To sum up: With bio-inspired and the potential for more sustainable architecture and construction technologies the book meets some of the most urgent problems in a world with increasing population that more and more accumulates in megacities and deceasing resources

Über dieses Buch

This book comprises a first survey of the Collaborative Research Center SFB-TRR 141 ‘Biological Design and Integrative Structures – Analysis, Simulation and Implementation in Architecture’, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft since October 2014. The SFB-TRR 141 provides a collaborative framework for architects and engineers from the University of Stuttgart, biologists and physicists from the University of Freiburg and geoscientists and evolutionary biologists from the University of Tübingen. The programm is conceptualized as a dialogue between the disciplines and is based on the belief that that biomimetic research has the potential to lead everyone involved to new findings far beyond his individual reach. During the last few decades, computational methods have been introduced into all fields of science and technology. In architecture, they enable the geometric differentiation of building components and allow the fabrication of porous or fibre-based materials with locally adjusted physical and chemical properties. Recent developments in simulation technologies focus on multi-scale models and the interplay of mechanical phenomena at various hierarchical levels. In the natural sciences, a multitude of quantitative methods covering diverse hierarchical levels have been introduced. These advances in computational methods have opened a new era in biomimetics: local differentiation at various scales, the main feature of natural constructions, can for the first time not only be analysed, but to a certain extent also be transferred to building construction. Computational methodologies enable the direct exchange of information between fields of science that, until now, have been widely separated. As a result they lead to a new approach to biomimetic research, which, hopefully, contributes to a more sustainable development in architecture and building construction.
