GEODESIC

We only need to look at the fractal pattern of a seashell to see geometry and biology unite in a single form. When R. Buckminster Fuller displayed a prototype of his geodesic dome in 1954, biomorphic design – with its curving, organic contours – was prevalent in art and architecture. I can’t help but think that these two aesthetics have a lot in common. And I swear I can see that commonality, even on the level of basic shapes, when plants and geodesic structures coalesce in contemporary design.
