Bionics or bionic architecture is a science which draws the technical inspiration of buildings and constructions from diverse behavior and connections of the living creatures’ world and resolves technical issues in biological ways. Objective: Bionics was first introduced in the 1950s and is seen in a lot of works done in different sciences. Nowadays, bionic architecture as a sub-set of this science has been recognized as one of the three world’s supreme sciences and this shows that what we had as architecture before has created some tensions in today’s human life and architecture has lost its original and fundamental base (the nature). Results: In fact, it is time to reconsider the nature and to stand up and do something in return for the compensation of all our historic negligence in this regard. Indeed, bionic architecture is the product of 3 main elements: structure, mechanism, and form. What we have now in architecture is only the application of mechanism and form rather than structure. There are a lot of researches and studies on living creatures especially humans that have not been considered yet. Conclusion: On the first sight, it may be assumed that human’s body is very complicated, but by studying it we come to this conclusion that it has a very comprehensible and applicable structure contrary to our assumption. In the present study, it is attempted to design an appropriate structure system by studying spine’s kinesiology and understanding all the connections among its components so that the structural system can perform a lot of diverse actions and can keep its balance all the time just like the spine.
