Research overview:
Shape of structure in natural world including that of growth process seems to result from broad-based optimization. Shape of artifact is derived from a kind of optimization as well. In order to clarify the relation between shape and optimizing requirement, we summarized characteristic of the shape of space structures and we also studied on the variety of the shape of flower or formulation of cocoon and characteristic of membrane structure of bat's wings. At the same time, we study on control of shape and formulation method of space structures by using self-similarity of fractal.
