Animal Architecture
BIOL 104
Fall 2009 not offered

Animals have structures that are optimally suited for their functions. Many human-made objects also have structures optimally suited for their functions. This course will examine the similarities and differences between the processes that shape the form and function of animals and the form and function of human-made structures. Examples from art and architecture will be compared to examples from biology. The course will consists of lectures and discussion. There will be two exams, a writing assignment, and a creative art project.

Essential Capabilities: Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Logical Reasoning
Students will study the logic of animal design and "construction" and create their own design.
