Abstract: Many geometrical forms and structures found in nature are ignored which could be used as an alternative solution in design. The structural systems, the designs and the technologies and techniques applied in insects and animal shelters, plants and trees may possibly prove to be very useful both in the planning and the building level. The technologies, the materials and the spaces are yet to be explored and can be adopted to solve design problems.

INTRODUCTION: The nature has a way of minimizing its use of material; it uses valuable resources and energy. The strongest present day need is to find ways to provide

Fractals, rectangles, spirals, mathematical computations etc are involved. There is reason why the rose petals open as they do, how a drop of water can hold the most volume before it explodes, cactus have spines, how lava cools, why even cracking occurs in shape., etc., how an ear of corn grows, how mountains clouds form and how spiders make their webs: how, in short, nature sees to it that things happen in much the same way again and again. Symmetry in nature brings the world into focus and define these design formations. The better understanding of the natural phenomenon can help in creating flexible design. These related values and ideas should be knotted to create new designs which treats the environment gently and uses our economic resources…show more content…
Processes like excavating and carving, piling up, moulding, wiling and folding, sticking together, weaving and sewing is dune, there is technology in all this.

MEANING IN HUMAN DESIGNS
In the years, the attention of designers has changed. We also have something to learn from the ecological adaptations .The Human art of design is oriented towards aesthetic part of it. It is to be changed and adopt methods of nature of flexibility and material usage.
CONCLUSION:

The correspondence between the relationships in nature and architecture is however restricted to those of physical features of forms. The relation between form, its function and its inherent characteristic nature, exhibiting a discrete unity of form, purpose and character is to properly understand flexibility of design.

The physical form should be primarily determined by the kind of functions it encloses and should express, in its built form the nature of the institution it is made to serve. The primary form giving idea or concept already pre- exists any actual conception of the form, and it is the designers’ job to discover
