Ingo Arndt Animal Architecture

Every day, all over the world, animals and insects set about the purposeful tasks of designing their homes, catching their prey, and attracting their mates. In the process they create gorgeous nests, shelters, and habitats. Capturing 120 of these wonders in all their beauty and complexity, Animal Architecture presents a visually arresting tribute to the intersection of nature, science, function, and design.”

Computer City - 1964 by Dennis Crompton
Structural architectural idea from Archigram illustrating the future importance of information flow within urban spaces:

Computer City described the city as a network of flows—flows of traffic, goods, people, and above all information.Strongly reminiscent of diodes and electrical substations, it was probably posited not so much as an alternative to the spawning urban forms of Plug-In City but,floating in abstract space, as a diagram of the systems that would let Plug-In City work, their chatter of data spooling across the top.
