The relationship between architecture and nature has been a constant debate in the field. The preposition that architecture is an integral part of nature and even the natural landscape itself has accompanied the development of architectural theories over time. However, the question of how nature can be a design language intrinsically involved in the design process has not been systematically explored. This paper, therefore, through initiating the concept of NArchitecTURE, commences with a review of relevant theories concerning the relationship between nature and architecture. And then, through investigating a number of pioneering design works, this paper identifies a series of morphological types and spatial patterns that NArchitecTURE can produce. By means of proposing an alternative design paradigm by working with nature, this paper aims to provide contemporary architects with valuable inspiration to achieve environmental sustainability.
