Hersey draws striking analogies between building types and animal species. He examines the relationship between physical structures and living organisms, from bridges to mosques, from molecules to mammals. Insects, mollusks, and birds are given separate chapters, and three final chapters focus on architectural form and biological reproduction.

Hersey also discusses architecture in connection with the bodys interior processes and shows how buildings may be said to reproduce, adapt, and evolve, like other inanimate or nonbiotic entities such as computer programs and robots.
