What is the architect doing in the jungle? How can architects and natural scientists immerse themselves in a fruitful dialogue to generate new insights for cross-disciplinary innovation? This volume contributes to the current discussion of arts-based research with the interdisciplinary research project BiornaMetics - Architecture Defined By Natural Patterns. Biornametics is an emerging contemporary design practice which explores a new methodology that interconnects scientific evidence with creative design in the field of architecture. The word biornametics is generated from "ornament", referring to the famous Austrian architect Adolf Loos, and biomimetics. It concentrates on the detection of the principles behind processes of emerging and dissolving patterns in animate and inanimate nature. Reflections on the architectural direction of Biornametics, issues of arts and science collaboration, and the application of the methodology show a diverse world of thoughts and approaches to the topic.
