Material Matters - February Building Better with Biomimicry and Biophilic Design

Going Au Naturel- Biomimicry in Building Materials

FUN FACT: The Singapore Theater design was inspired by the popular Durian fruit whose spikes perform multiple functions including deterring animals and birds and allowing the structure to accumulate heat.

Biomimicry is the imitation of billions of years of nature’s learning to solve complex human problems.  Architecture and building materials are now taking cues from nature in design and product development. Check out our blog post here
