While both biomimicry-digital architecture and architecture that existed before computer look at nature, they both look at in with completely different lenses. Earlier forms of architecture, including but not limited to modern architecture searched for beauty in nature. And they did so by looking at proportions in nature, and applying those proportions to architecture to give it perfect proportions. On the other hand, architecture using biomimicry looks in nature for efficiency.

It looks at how nature creatures do certain jobs in a great efficiency, and try to mimic these organic behaviors on the larger scale to find efficient solutions to the current architectural problems.
