Zoömorphic

Zoömorphic or New Animal architecture. Late-C20 and early-C21 architecture characterized by wavy and flowing lines, loose, amorphous shapes, and, sometimes, with exteriors resembling carapaces. Examples might include Future Systems's Selfridge's Building in Birmingham (2001–3), Cook & Fournier's Kunsthaus, Graz, Austria (2000–3), and certain works by Calatrava and Gehry. Such structures are essentially inimical to established urban fabric, and would be anathema to protagonists of New Urbanism. See biomorph.
