Summary The three-dimensional and sculptural "organic" architecture of the 20th century in particular addresses the corporeality of biological creatures. Gunther Feuerstein has found analogies between buildings and human beings and buildings and animals in the work of famous architects like Imre Makovecz, Santiago Calatrava, Frank O. Gehry and others.
