This paper deals with the complex relationship between the observation of nature and the development of digital-design processes. This relationship reveals itself aporetic particularly if the concept of mimesis has beenclarified. This contribution focuses on some projects that may be ascribed in digital organicism. Challenged by theobservation of “The Elephant house” by Markus Schietsch Architekten in Zurich, the paper refers to some fundamentaltexts that show how an explicit and structured theory may help to avoid a new sublimation of the techniquethrough miming natural forms.
