As a branch of organic architecture or the architecture inspired with nature, animal architecture has been considered as one of the common architectural design methods. The main goal of this paper is to determine the position of this architectureamong architectural methods and the way these methods overlap. The research concludes that animal architecture has remarkable similarities with some design methods specifically the methods known as analogy, metaphor, biomorphic and organitech. Moreover, it may identify formal anatomical analogy between animals (bodies or habitats) and architectural projects. Furthermore, animals, as animate and motile natural phenomena, may also provide ecological analogies in architecturaldesign which produce more applicable and conceptual solutions. Those, therefore; function more than mere visual images in design thinking.
