ZooMorphic, BioMorphic, BioMimicry and BioHacking

Zoomorphic presents a startling new trend in architecture - buildings that look like animals. Animal resemblances arise for various reasons. An architect may wish to create a symbol, as architects have always done. Or, there may be a functional explanation for why a building comes to share elements of its design with that of some living creature.

 Biomimicry is the relatively new process of using biological principles found in nature to develop new technologies. The most recent and ubiquitous example of which is OLED a material based on the chromatophoric skin of creatures such as the squid.

A new revolution in human biology is known as biohacking and sometimes referred to as the post human revolution. It is the idea of using monitoring devices, sensors and even chemical and electronic implants to engineer human V2.0.
