Welcome to Organic Architecture & Design

This blog focuses primarily on organic shapes, even if eco-friendliness, energy-conservation, natural materials and new visions often go hand-in-hand with softer shapes. There are of course many eco-houses shaped just like any rectilinear house.

Organically designed houses are often easier to heat, less wind-catching and more stable in the event of a natural disaster. They also tend to fit better into natural environments and feel more cosy or inspiring to live in. Trickier to furnish, but such problems can be solved.

Great introduction to the principles of organic architecture: Organic architecture

Another good article on the subject: The Classic Rock Realm of Ferro-Cement

And a Wikipedia article for the newbie. 
Next, I’ll be posting links to some of my favorite organic architects and designers.
