A German physicist studies trees to refine car parts; architects examine shells and flowers to inspire efficient construction; the Wright brothers learn designs for flight from the turkey vulture: these are among the examples in this narrative of the relationship between natural forms and human design. Insights span history from the relationship between Greek temples and human anatomy to the way the faces of Miss Universe contestants conform to the mathematical model of the Golden Mean.
