The human form becomes the bearer of my inspiration, revealing a cosmology within itself, appealing to the idea of understanding the body and implementing its essence into architecture. The lessons found in the tectonic of oneâ s body will assist in discovering an integral logic that may translate in the design of the building. Living organisms inspire architectural posture that generate my architectural ideas. Architecture considered, in a very natural way reflects humans. I try to find a methodology inspired by natural organisms, finding the human body the most beautiful and functional of all natural objects. The structure begins to illustrate the innovation of the materials being employed to a different type of solution to a structural problem. The truth of materials, and honesty in the expression of structure reflect the movement of the object.
