Wild DesignPrinceton Architectural Press
Nature is the original architect, designing and building extraordinary structures through more than four billion years of evolution, and in response to the tremendous forces of the Earth. Wild Design celebrates wild design in the world of animals, plants, and other organisms, as well as in earth, stone, and water. This illustrated compendium explores structures as intricate as the microscopic glass" cases of jewel-like diatoms, as flamboyant as the festooned leks of bowerbirds, and as mysterious as the towering hoodoos of the Colorado Plateau. Bringing together art and science in lush illustrations and lively text, Wild Design is a great gift for anyone curious about the creative genius of the world around us."
