We report a periodically patterned organization of hierarchical ZnO twin-crystals on a planar substrate in a biomimetic solution process. The deposition of the porous complex ZnO structure on specific sites of the substrate is achieved by introduction of the substrate surface modification and gelatin in a hydrothermal crystallization of ZnO.
