Organic architecture promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world through design approaches so sympathetic and well integrated with its site organic architecture was coined by Frank Lloyd Wright -literal relationship to the natural surroundings -reflecting the symbiotic ordering systems of nature Morphogenesis in architectural design In architecture,morphogenesis is understood as a group of methods that employ digital as generative tools for the derivation of form and its transformation Often in an aspiration to express contextual processes in built form
  3. 3. Bionics comes from biology world, and it helps to find unique design and construction solutions. When inspiration is taken from bionics and used to construct the buildings, it becomes organic architecture Natural forms can become inspiration to architecture. These shapes and inspirations are called bionics. Bionic architecture refuses traditional rectangular shapes of buildings.
  4. 4. Architect and planner David Pearson proposed a list of rules towards the design of organic architecture. "Let the design: •be inspired by nature and be sustainable, healthy, conserving, and diverse. •unfold, like an organism, from the seed within. •exist in the "continuous present" and "begin again and again". •follow the flows and be flexible and adaptable. •satisfy social, physical, and spiritual needs. •"grow out of the site" and be unique. •celebrate the spirit of youth, play and surprise. •express the rhythm of music and the power of dance."
  5. 5. Modern Organic Architecture: Hybrid Urban Housing Units this incredible Japanese housing structure is a strange new take on the fusion of modernistic ideas and naturalistic aesthetics. a tree-like curved-and-cut facade covers angular construction on the lower floors and terminates midway up the building, leaving a very modern-looking box on top.
  6. 6. Kunsthaus Graz The biomorphous building designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier—known locally as the Friendly Alien As an exhibition centre for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus exhibits Austrian and international art from 1960 onwards. Its BIX media façade—designed by Berlin designers realities:united—constitutes a unique fusion of architecture and media technology.

  8. 8. No discussion of Frank Lloyd Wright and organic architecture would be complete without mentioning the magnificent Fallingwater House near Pittsburgh
  9. 9. The building form is derived from the outline of the crests of the waves of the sea. Linear undulating balconies traverse the length of this residential apartment building offering unrestricted views of the sea to each of the apartments.
  10. 10. Through years of study and experimentation, organic architecture came to describe Wright’s total design ideology. Some of the governing principles of this philosophy included: -The belief that a building should appear to grow easily from its site -Choosing one dominant form for a building and integrating that form throughout -Using natural colors: “Go into the woods and field for color schemes” -Revealing the nature of materials -Opening up spaces -Providing a place for natural foliage.
