Biomimicry in architecture Design a building with a specific use and purpose, using design in nature as the key components of the structure. 1.Function and purpose of building Have solar energy and give awareness of Coral being an animal and the dying reefs. Research current building styles for this structure2. Begin to research either an animal, or plant structures that could possibly be used1.

Silent Film (Myra, Emmy, Mia, Jen, Alexis) 2 Page 2 Begin designing FINAL Label components and write at least one paragraph about how your research influenced your design. Will be submitted with picture. Myra and I have designed a coral-inspired building that functions as a hotel or apartment building. While we took the colors and structure of coral into consideration, we also wanted to bring awareness to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia which is dying because of coral bleaching. Human activities and waste are making the ocean temperatures rise, which has become too much for about half of the reef. If you look at our model, you can see that it's actually based off the shape of a diseased table coral. Coral are actually living animals; they are made of tiny animals called polyps. Coral also eat by catching on to plankton that float through the sea waters. Regarding our building, the polyps represent individual rooms/units. The extremities of the building will serve as solar panels, "catching" rays from the sun and converting it into energy. The bridge in the middle acts as a connection between thetwo towers.
