Architectural Geonics Subject and Tasks
V.S. Lesovik

At present, the development of our civilization has entered a unique stage where environmental, geopolitical and social problems are significantly aggravated. Today all the countries of the world are characterized by aggressive and concentrated compaction of cities. Living in metropolitan areas (man-made anomalies) is a source of moral and physical discomfort and factor of the individual's degradation. Statistics shows a direct relationship between the number of storeys of the living area and diseases, stresses, etc. One of the ways out of this situation is to use the provisions of a new scientific field of architectural geonics. In contrast to the architectural bionics that uses objects to emulate the organic world, architectural geonics follows objects that have arisen as a result of the impact of geological and cosmochemical processes on the inorganic world. Nature is a beautiful architect. As a result of geological and cosmochemical processes objects of the inorganic world are unique in beauty, color and shaping. The objects of the inorganic world, which may be the subject of imitation, include the structure of chemical elements and compounds, some of characteristics of minerals, rocks, weathering forms and elements of space subjects. The provisions of architectural geonics can be used to create small architectural forms, interior designs, architecture, buildings and others. Thus, architectural geonics allows experts to develop a new architectural ensembles tectonics use to achieve the inorganic world, to design structures organically fit into the environment in accordance with the geomorphology, climate, and cultural traditions.
