Inspired by Nature

Bahamon and Perez gather together architectural work that was inspired by world geology--from crystals to volcanoes. Full of colorful illustrations and architectural plans, these selections show how geological formations can form the basis for modern design of all types and sizes. Natural materials play a starring role in many of these buildings, and not surprisingly, particular attention has been paid to providing sustainable building solutions.
