Algorithms in nature drive architecture research, parametric designs

Beyond the appearance of a tree, a branch or a simple leaf, there are mathematical patterns at play in nature. Understanding nature's basic algorithms allows architects like ASU's Professor David Newton in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts to explore natural systems that can be translated into efficient designs and awe-inspiring architecture.
