THE ANATOMY OF ARCHITECTURE SPACE
Modern man, who is a biological species, continues to live in artiď€ cial machine cities. Urban environment, often representing the faceless, insipid and unnatural buildings, provokes negative psychological state of the person. The concept of "Living city" involves a physical ability of architectural space to interact with environment, adapt and create a new microclimate, create energy resources, reticulate waste, recover and purify air, water and land. Nature gives us not only inspiration by shape and space, nature gives us the tools and materials. The new model of city includes the integration of intelligent natural systems in design and architectural planning structure in the form of programmed protocells, microalgae, aerobic algae and bacteria. Symbiotic interaction between technology, nature and architecture allow us to reorganise natural environment, as how nature would do that.
Concept of Living city The model of «Living city» has a multifunctional structure. On the ground level model is based by pillars, leaving open and free from building land. The rst level has a porous structure, inside of which public and ofce spaces such as cinema, media library, galleries, restaurants, lecture halls, and also mobile capsule hotels are formed. Green well, the gaps, function as lters of cleaning air, at the same time passing light in a porous space. Main residential blocks are on upper level. Algal protocetidae structure absorbs carbon dioxide and produces a carbonate oxide to create an articial limestone reef, which strengthens the supports of the "Living city". Internal "venous and capillary" system of a living lter provides control over biodigital technology.It is embedded in the structural muscles of the buildings and is carried out by sensors monitoring temperature, humidity and air quality. Suspension bridges of the hybrid web-like material attached to the building blocks of buildings.

Section of food unit There is a garden for growing vegetables and fruit for residents. Recycling of biological waste into humus fertilizer for plants happens in pillars.
Section of scientiď€ c natural unit Carbon dioxide is absorbed by microorganisms for the production of clean air. There is a formation of artiď€ cial clouds using halotherapy bacteria in this block, in consequence of which amount of heat islands in Sao Paulo will decrease.

EMOTIONAL RECOVERY SPACE Kazan, Russia. 2016
Theatre is a space of recreation from the routine of life, a space for dealing with psychological problems and setting priorities. The theater is the "antibiotic" that a person must take in order not to feel negative viruses such as rutin, social media, negative human society. By playing scenes, the visitor will be able to see himself on the other hand , to consider the ills of society.

BIOMIMETIC CITY Concept of urban hub Kazan, Russia. 2016
EPILOGUE Considering the city as a diverse and constantly transform system, it is necessary to highlight the main issues: environmental problems, fragmentation of society, transport issues, consumer culture, selď€ shness. One of the key problems of socialization of urban population is observation nature only as a way of entertainment, recreation.
Begining of Story We examined the Vakhitovsky district of Kazan city. Transformation of this area is the creation of a new structure based on the priority of pedestrian communications in both horizontal and mainly vertical directions. The new structure represents the lowest level, all-natural, clean, free from building-level and higher-level for people with owing communications, squares and buildings. Natural element acts in several options: in the form of housing of animals, birds and sh, production
nature in the form of growing food, recreation nature in the form of green channel, extending through all structure of city, and at the same time having educational, therapeutic and educational functions. Centre is formed by three blocks: natural production block in the form of vertical farm, natural recreatio-educational block and cultural block. Housing cells, sports, retail, ofce, recreational and creative blocks are fomed around these three «cocoons».

So why? Residential cells are located mainly on lower tiers of the center, ofď€ ce cells - on upper. It is caused by closer contact of people with the earth level. The lower level represents an organic park with animal, water channels, gardens with birds and pedestrian communications. This structure has an orientation to vertical development and more compact urban development in the horizontal direction. It is caused by globalization, an overpopulation, preserving the biggest territory for wild nature, by faster movement in the vertical directions, by more interesting foreshortenings for citizens at the expense of a multilevelness, polyfunctionality of spaces and a possibility of endto-end viewing.

This is an area with 7 natural climatic areas with an artiď€ cial microclimate. There is the individual architectural imagination for each natural area dividing by similarity of landscape, spatial and volumetric features of the Arctic desert, Taiga, Forest-steppe, Tropical desert, Savanna, Monsoon forest, Wet forests.

Front garden with tropical trees adheres to the concept of stacked forests in the wild nature: the top-level of trees with a height of 50 m, canopy (30 m), intermediate (10-15 m) and forest litter(the height of the bushes is no more than 2 m). The front garden is contiguous to Indian elephant house and aquarium with ď€ shes and representatives of the cetaceans. Huge waterfall is the main attraction for visitors.

Forest steppe zone The main volume is a curved rock that also operates. There is a lake with wooden decks, passing on the level lake. This lake is a habitat for waterfowl. The space above the lake, in a form of a small atrium, formed by rock, covered by a glass shell with pillars - pillars that mimic trees. In these columns the birds nest freely moving inside the "yard". Inside the rock there is a block with predatory owls, a small terrarium, restaurants, gift shops.

Hotel, inspired by nature International architectural competition «Master Plan 2017. Tafer Hotels&Resorts» Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Natural mechanisms and spaces are represented a model for formation innovative urban spaces that combines non-linear bio-, zoo- aesthetics, the latest technology, biomaterials and conciseness of natural lines. The concept introduces a biomimicry of Mexican mountains, crevices, multilayer and plastic relief. Architecture thus creates its own silhouette of relief and articial landscape. Semi-open and isolated spaces are formed by articial landscape, for example the creation of the pond in the cleft site allows us to create a more enclosed, private place with a humid climate and comfortable environment. All rooms facing to the ocean with public recreation, entertainment, feeding points on the rst four oors.
