|Issue Date:||Dec-2007||Publisher:||Thomas Telford Ltd.||Source:||Proceedings of the ICE - Engineering Sustainability, 2007, Volume 160, Issue 4, Pages 179 –188||Abstract:||The philosophical aspects of applying the principles of biomimicry are explored in a case study of structural design. Integrating structural engineering with services engineering can be regarded, to some extent, as taking principles from biological systems and applying them to large-scale conceptual design. The end-product discussed herein a so-called load-bearing duct, a functional naturally ventilated multi-storey office building that takes the applied loading efficiently both structurally and cost-effectively giving it the potential to be sustainable throughout its design life.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/jspui/handle/10488/4965||ISSN:||1751-7680||DOI:||10.1680/ensu.2007.160.4.179|
