Louis Sullivan (1856)

Sullivan is considered the father of modern American architecture. After working for several Chicago firms, he joined the office of Dankmar Adler in 1879, becoming Adler's partner at age 24.

During this period, Frank Lloyd Wright spent six years as an apprentice to Sullivan, who would be a major influence on the younger architect.

Biomimicry is the latest architectural principle--design guided by Nature: for example, in Zimbabwe architects modeled the Green Building after termite mounds. The Green Building replaces the usual air-conditioning system with a self-regulating convective system inspired by termite mound construction. I'm sure an innovator like Mr. Sullivan would approve.

never heard of biomimicry.... mimicry in biology, yes.
so now we mimic the mimicry in nature... the termite is the 'inspiration', the teacher.
this is good news.
