YIN AND YANG-
(TAIJITU SYMBOL)
The earliest reference to Yin and Yang is in the I Ching (Book of Changes) in approximately in 700 BC. In this work, all phenomena are said to be reduced to Yin-Yang.
Yin and Yang is one of the most fundamental concepts in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as it is the foundation of diagnosis and treatment.
Translations: 1. positive, active, male principle in nature, 2. south or sunny side of a hill , 3. north of a river.
Translations: 1. female, passive, negative principle in nature, 2. the moon, 3. shaded orientation, 4. north or shady side of a hill, 5. south of a river.

Yin and Yang
1. Yin-Yang are opposites

They are either on the opposite ends of a cycle, like the seasons of the year, or, opposites on a continuum of energy or matter. This opposition is relative, and can only be spoken of in relationships. Yin and Yang are never static but in a constantly changing balance.
Four Main Aspects of Yin and Yang
Relationship
Yin and Yang
2. Interdependent:

Can not exist without each other
Nothing is totally Yin or totally Yang.

Just as a state of total Yin is reached, Yang begins to grow. Yin contains seed of Yang and vise versa.They constantly transform into each other. For

The classics state:

"Yin creates Yang and Yang activates Yin".
Yin and Yang
Mutual consumption of Yin and Yang

Relative levels of Yin Yang are continuously changing.
Normally this is a harmonious change, but when Yin or Yang are out of balance they affect each other, and too much of one can eventually weaken (consume) the other.

A TRADITIONAL MAASAI HUT

COMPLEXITY IN SIMPLICITY
IMAGE No. 2
The Maasai people of East Africa live in southern Kenya and northern Tanzania along the Great Rift Valley on semi-arid and arid lands
MAASAI HOUSING & ARCHITECTURE
IMAGE No. 2
The framework is a lattice of poles, the
uprights perhaps 1.5 metres to
2..0 metres in length cut from the
thickets and implanted deep in the
soil and interwoven with withies
and branches, twigs and dried grass
to seal all the gaps.

IMAGE No. 2
This is first plastered with wet mud on the outer face, although occasionally mud may be daubed onto the inside wall as well, and then plastered again with fresh cow dung which when dry is impervious to rain.
IMAGE No. 2
The finished hut will not be higher than 2 metres, and tall men will have to bend on entering through the doorway and inside. It has section for the very young lambs and kids, for cooking and for sleeping. The bed will be a cattle hide spread over a mattress of soft tree branches and grass which is used during the day as a seat.
IMAGE No. 2
The Human Skin.
Think of the nerves as the lattice of poles and withies while the epidermis layer as the layer of cow dung on the huts’ surfaces……….
The complexity in the structure of the Maasai hut is that it functions like the human skin!
Cow dung is a poor conductor of heat. It allows minimal heat loss from the interior of the structure while at the same time limiting excessive heat gain from the exterior environment.
IMAGE No. 2
We don’t need air-conditioning!...........
…………….do we?
The cracks in the dung outermost cover acts like the pores in the human skin. Just like how the human skin sweats during hot weather conditions, the structure, on warming releases the moisture trapped in the cowdung layer which in turn cools the structure on evaporation.

Natural patterns and Propotions…….
When a snail grows up, it makes its room in the shell.
The size of new room is k times as large as adjacent room. If it repeats this operation, the shape of the shell becomes as log clock.

Mankind can find the solution to many of his problems by research and observation in nature around him.
God has put the best answers in the creation of objects and creatures.

Architectural designs inspired by nature
Industrial designs inspired by nature
IMAGE No. 3
Man should find the best answers by observation.
With study and analysis in the structural and forms of procedures in nature, we can solve many problems.
IMAGE No. 3
Economically, the tendency to have the most productivity with the least amount of material loss, the necessity of organizing and coordinating materials and the environment with nature, outstanding developments of advanced technology and the advancement of our technical abilities has made us pay more attention to the
things happening in nature.
THE END

The smart mechanism and form of creatures can best intrigue the curious man.
Natural forms are not only efficient but they are aesthetically pleasant.
The shape of an object or creature in nature and its components together with its compatibility with the environment perfect each other reciprocally, and the resulted harmony is one of the most important teachings of nature designers and engineers alike.
Following natural patterns to unite architecture and structure
