About this book

Language: English, originally published in German

In Animal Architecture, Ingo Arndt explores marvels of nature with spectacular imagery, showcasing the complex and elegant structures that animals create both for shelter and for capturing prey. Arndt's photographs display wonders such as the colourful mating arenas of bowerbirds in West Papua and the fantastic nests created by ants in Africa. Studio photographs supplement the images from Arndt's journey and offer close-up views of the nests, mounds and webs constructed by the animals. Features both breathtaking photography and scientific insight into animal behavior.

Please note: not to be confused with the 1995 book by Juhani Pallasmaa or the 2004 book by Mike Hansell of the same title.
