Abstract

Nanotechnology is one of the key technologies of the 21st century, which has a potentiality to offer sustainable solutions to contemporary architecture and lower building costs. It helps biomimicry (as a way of thinking which is going back to nature for inspiration) to be achieved at new levels, through producing (new materials, devices and robots), that function as the same way as organisms do. Both nanotechnology and biomimicry take their power from nature and could have extraordinary results if implemented in building design, systems and construction. This research is looking at the concept of nano-biomimicry (biomimicry on nano level) and its usage in architecture. The main concern of this research is to arrive to a better understanding of the levels of implementation of nano-biomimicry for sustainability in architecture. The research uses qualitative method and case study approach to analyze and evaluate the levels of implementation of nano-biomimicry in sustainable architecture. It leads to a new understanding of the levels of implementation for nano-biomimicry for achieving sustainability in architecture and considers an expansion of the old categorization into seven categories including form, materials, construction, function, system, computer modelling, and robotic strategies.
