BIOMIMICRY. Let’s break it down. “Bio” means life and “mimicry” means to imitate. Biomimicry means to imitate life or nature. Have you heard the expression, “Nature knows best?” Well, biomimicry is a way of learning from nature. Through observing nature in action we can use that knowledge to inspire new ideas!

[ to imitate nature ]

You can be the one that invents a “new solution to clean the air or a new rooftop”, one that is natural, one that does not pollute, one that adapts to the needs of our planet and then to our needs.

“The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved”.

Richard Rogers (1933-),
British architect.

Design Inspired by Nature

What if we told you that the most powerful laboratory in the world doesn’t have any microscopes, safety goggles, or walls? When it comes to figuring out efficient solutions, no human lab can compete with nature. That’s because evolution and natural selection work like an experiment: as nature’s conditions change, designs can either succeed or fail.
