Abstract

This paper provides an initial exploration of natural formsstreamed into geometric patterns, providing a basis for furtherresearch that may find use in generative architectural design.The development of interest in geometric forms encountered innature, and their implementation in design solutions, is expandingwith the help of modern computer technology that has enabledthe use of generative models. The biomimetic approachsets new standards in generative design. Through the form ofthe flower, which was singled out as an example, all the qualitiesderived from these connections, and the primarily aestheticimpression based on harmony and perfect proportions of elements,following the stability, strength and power of this form,can be clearly observed.Within the research, the study was based on the geometry ofthe flower species Ramonda nathaliae P. et P., an endemic specieswith restricted distribution in Serbia, by using parametricmodelling methods and experimental designs displayed on theDVD (duplicate along curve) and the use of Voronoi diagrams.
