In this book we develop both principles, recognizing that nature teaches us that everything is connected; therefore, our study of the building envelope is not meant as design of a part in isolation, but rather the opposite, which focuses on that part in the context of the whole.

The attention brought to bio-inspired design in the last 15 years has allowed the emergence of a new group of designers and architects interested in interpreting, participating in, and collaborating in the development of architecture which is environmentally and ecologically sound, as well as atmospheric, sensible, and smart.
