The purpose of this research is to construct a classification system of biological information so that it can be applied to biomimicry architectural research. It is both uneconomical and time consuming for architectural researchers to spend time searching and studying principles of organisms. In this study, we suggested a classification system which includes biological information and can be used as a guide for architectural researchers attempting to research biomimicry architecture. Basic principles were extracted from architectural planning elements and biological information. Architectural experts matched biological principles to relevant architectural principles. Based on the architectural and biological principle correspondence table, group analysis was conducted. Biological principles were classified into 6 parts: air, structure/material, habitat, water/circulation, shape, and energy. This classification of biological principles corresponds to 6 architectural principles: ventilation, natural material, insulation, water resource, awning, and lighting/solar heat. According to the results of this research, specific classification groups may appear as biometric information increase through further research.
