From Elephants to Skyscrapers: Zoomorphic Architecture

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Imagine a structure that looks like a huge elephant where you walk up a spiral staircase hidden in a leg, into interior rooms, past sun-filled windows where you can view the sunset on the expansive horizon. What about a big pink pig that once served as a hamburger stand? How about visiting a hotel that is designed like a crocodile or a museum that resembles a turtle? These oddities of architecture are classified as zoomorphic architecture. Zoomorphic architects study the shapes of animals or their skeletal structures to find inspiration for buildings. Beyond these fun structures, architects have designed functioning skyscrapers inspired by sea sponges and elephants. Rail terminals inspired by pangolins, as well as other buildings inspired by animals and their skeletal structures. From Elephants to Skyscrapers will inspire people to view architecture as more than square, rectangular structures. One will find fascinating information about buildings that are relatively unknown to the general public. This book was written for readers to expand their imaginations and interest in pursuing careers in the creative fields, along with informing people of unique structures.
