Top 5 Popular Aesthetic Building Construction Architecture Beauties Inspired by Nature


It could be rightly said that innovations
are born out of inspirations. Mirroring this phenomenon are the structural
transformations being witnessed worldwide. A notable change in the creation of theme
based architectural masterpieces was seen since the late 19th century. Antoni Gaudi was one such Spanish Catalan
architect who sourced inspiration from live natural objects. Deeply influenced by the atmosphere of forests,
Gaudi designed the interior of his masterpiece Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona, Spain. The trend which became soon popular in the
construction world, saw the birth of a cutting edge design pattern known as ‘biomimetic’
– means replicating nature in architectural designs. In this video we will see most popular such
architectural masterstrokes worldwide. Located in the Xinyi District of Taipei, Taiwans
capital city, this financial centre derived inspiration for its structural outlook from
the indigenous slender bamboo – which is considered as an icon for learning and growth. The structure was ranked as the tallest building
in the world from 2004-09. Deriving its inspiration from a birds nest,
the Beijing National Stadium, also known as ‘Birds Nest Stadium’. The stadium though was primarily designed
for the 2008 Summer Olympics has today become an iconic attraction defining Beijings skyline. Known as one of the first environmentally
progressive buildings in London, UK, The Gherkin derived its inspiration from sea creatures. The 180 m tower has an air ventilation system
similar to sea sponges and anemones. The Gherkin is supported by an exoskeleton
structure and is designed with an ease for ventilation. One of the most unique and striking infrastructures
in the citys skyline, the Aldar Headquarters Building was voted as the Best Futuristic
Design of 2008. Deriving its inspiration from a seashell,
it was the first circular building in the Middle East. Located at the heart of Mumbai, Ahuja Towers
has today redefined Mumbais skyline with its 250 m height. With its winged wind like crown, the structural
beauty of this icon derives its inspiration from wind sail boats that are docked at Mumbais
plush coast line. The interior designs on the other hand replicate
the vibrancies of changing seasons. With architectural designs from Palmer & Turner,
Singapore and interiors by New York based Wilson Associates; the iconic tower is one
among the only three high rises in India to use the Viracon Low-E glass. While guaranteeing a luxurious living experience,
the project also remains grounded in delivering its sustainable values. Despite, its high elevation, Ahuja Towers
ensures total durability from extreme wind pressures. Designed and built after passing through a
wind tunnel test, the tower has two ‘C’ shaped belt trusses on the 25th and 41st level
to provide the required stiffness. Standing tall as an iconic landmark, the majestic
Ahuja Towers has even marked its fame in the worlds structural world map. The 53-storey tower is today is the only Indian
high rise to mark its glory in the league of worlds Top-100 high rises built in 2015.
