Nature offers boundless inspiration for sustainable design, but how do we access the wealth of biological information available and apply it effectively to design? This project-oriented course provides an introduction to the tools and concepts of biomimicry, a new discipline that emulates nature's best ideas and blueprints in order to solve human design challenges. The course will cover core biological principles, astound you with the wealth of design solutions available in nature, and provide numerous examples of innovative designs inspired by natural models. Overall, this course provides powerful metaphors and methods for looking to nature as model, mentor, and measure in our designs. / Open to students ages 16 and above.
