Systems architecture and its associated parallel biology generate architectural forms that are both ‘green’ and surreal by nature. The connection between systems architecture and Leo Lionni's fantastic book Parallel Botany are considered as architects are now starting to have the ability to create great works of ‘biological parallelism’ using technologies that are highly ‘sur’ real, they are on top of the ‘real’.
