This bionic dome, built by University of Stuttgart’s Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE), is modeled on the plate skeleton of a sea urchin.    The result is a structure that is strong as well as lightweight- and pretty cool-looking to boot.

Ernst Haeckel in Ceylon in the year 1881. Haeckel was Darwin’s biggest German-language promoter. He drew up his own genealogic tree of life, and coined several terms still used in biology (including phylogeny, stem cell, ecology and Protista). He discovered, described and illustrated thousands of new species. Two mountains and an asteroid bear his name. Ernst Haeckel was a true Renaissance man—part philosopher, part scientist, part artist. ~via tentaclesdaily, Wordpres
