Biomimicry in Architecture
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 With the increase of the importance of environmental safety, safe, reliant, clean energy pollution is still present, but in third world countries not so much. This building, "Manta", provides more than enough electricity for a developing country, or in relation to the United States, the ability to bring light to New York state alone. In perspective, the, "Manta", produces 11,000,000 MWh per month, while the whole state of New York consumes about 10,498,000 MWh (Mega-Watts an Hour). To end poverty, tools and support is needed from those countries, and a constant overabundance of electricity assists in this. This building would be primarily built on the coast of any body of water. This includes rivers, lakes, oceans, and more. Using hydroelectricity from those bodies of water, the building pressurizes water through wheels that generate electricity constantly. The water enters from the mouth, and leaves through a canal of the manta ray's tail. The structure would be built out of a non-corrosive and durable material and painted gray. The structure is mainly self-ran, and would only need around 10 workers, as well as many outside inspectors. The side on the water would be supported by long support beams that would run the water. In addition, "Manta", has 10 empty rooms and a empty water channel towards the coastal side of the structure that can be used for whatever the country wants. For example, water purification, water waste treatment, and breeding for endangered marine animals. Research on world needs aided research, and we thought we wanted some sort marine animal. Eventually we remembered that Rays, more specifically Sting Ray's can generate electricity while in the water in their tails and body. We just used the body of a Manta Ray We wouldn't want the building completely in the water due to more cost for the third world countries that would struggle to pay for the factory. Most of the structures that would be built will be funded by both the country and various charitable efforts around the world. The area would be secure from nature and natural disasters, as well as thieves. With that, another benefit is that when the water that goes into the structure, it is filtered heavily to not allow any animals, or any clogging objects within the building. Research current building styles for this structure2. Would YOU live in a floating city? Fascinating 3,000ft vessel 'Meriens' shaped like a giant manta ray would be home to 7,000 people without producing any waste With its radical design, the giant City of Meriens would be nearly 2,950ft long and 1,650ft wide • Designed by French architect Jacques Rougerie, who envisions the vessel as a university city • City of Meriens would be completely sustainable and autonomous, and produce zero waste • Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-3192446/Would-live-floating-city-Fascinating-3-000ft-vessel- Meriens-shaped-like-giant-manta-ray-home-7-000-people-without-producing-waste.html#ixzz4hHViVI7P Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook Begin to research either an animal, or plant structures that could possibly be used3.
