Biomimicry Thinking for Design Workshop
Track: Biomimicry + Biophilic Design

Biomimicry is an innovation method that seeks leading-edge sustainable solutions by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. Biomimicry can be applied to create new products, processes, and policies—new ways of living—that are inherently sustainable, effective and efficient, reduce materials and waste, increase revenue and brand loyalty. In this workshop session, participants will have the opportunity to experience biomimicry through hands on exercises as they explore what it means to "do" biomimicry. The workshop is designed to help participants understand how and where biomimicry fits into the integrated design process and will include examples of Built Environment projects that have successfully integrated biomimicry into the design and development process.
