So many many man-made creations have been inspired by nature, animal physiology in particular. But fashion... Biomimicry even goes beyond the fashionable animal prints we find printed on so many fabrics these days. Here, for example, is a Bird Skull
This bionic dome, built by University of Stuttgart’s Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE), is modeled on the plate skeleton of a sea urchin. The result is a structure that is strong as well as lightweight- and pretty cool-looking to boot.
