Interesting and nice article but a bit more history should have been introduced. The facts presented are just the continuation of a large body of architecture during the past with modern means. Architecture has often followed Nature and Biology, much more than just corintian leaves. Examples could be most of Gaudi's work, in the tradition of Arab architects or Calatrava's BCE gallery in Toronto, obviously inspired by cicas trees leaves. Most of Mudejar and Mozarab architecture have been along similar lines, but up to date Science then was Algebra (al-ğabr), so the hot thing was tiling.\nThe difference these days is that some mechanisms in complexity are more clear but the idea is not really new as presented. Fuller's structures are another, more contemporary, example. So the work presented is no doubt very nice but just follow the steps of a long historical tradition, Firestone produce wonderful tires but didn't invent the wheel.
