dc.description.abstract ABSTRACT "The only body of god that we shall ever see is nature and through nature's forms, processes and beauty will we come to know the eternal and ever changing form of life". - Eugene I sui - Art resembles with nature dates back to the cave paintings and to the megalithic stone structures. It can be identified that the inspiration of nature is at the inherent root of all artistic creations in every cultures from time immemorial. Scientists, Artists, poets and mystics have found deep inspirations from close identification with nature./ Nature is the universal guide and it is the greatest teacher to learn. Deep observations, experiences and understanding of nature gave deep insight into 'being inspired'. Those inspirations enhance the creativity in Architecture and achieve the essence that is timeless. It needs to be in 'dialogue with nature' that is understands the laws and rules of nature and integrated them in to designs./ This indicates the observations made by Brian Edward as "Being inspired means learning from nature at many levels the aesthetic, the systemic and thes piritual. These approaches will give the Architecture we need. "
