Summary
"Many architects today are looking to plants and animals to help solve their design challenges. Inspired by how nature already works, these architects are coming up with innovative ways to cool buildings, withstand earthquakes and save energy. In Wild Buildings and Bridges, bestselling author Etta Kaner explores these wild and wonderful feats of architecture. Kids will discover buildings and bridges inspired by cactuses, beetles, termite towers, trees, grass - and more! In some cases, nature has thought of it first, like a flood-proof house that floats like a water lily leaf. Nature's beauty has also inspired buildings that look like a lotus flower, a bird's nest and even an armadillo. Filled with kid-friendly examples, interactive activities and eye-catching illustrations, this book will fascinate budding architects and makers who love to build and know how things work."--
