summary Using mathematics and digital methods as a tool of investigation in both the natural and architectural form gives us a flexibility of exploring mu ltiple forms and allows us to implement new parameters into the mathematical framework to generate rather more complex architectural geometry. The method of generating architectural forms in this research is developed by selecting seashell as natural object and investigating its mathematical description then abstracting each mathematical parameter with others possible mathematical functions. Each selected mathematical function represents a mathematical abstraction of a specific seashell parameter as it occurs in nature. These enable the exploring of new mathematical relationships to generate a variety of architectural forms. In the seashell form these mathematical functions are limited to those that appeared in the actual geometry of shell such as logarithmic spiral, circle and ellipse. However, in the architectural form the limitations are less.
