Why it is important to learn what it is and how it is influencing areas of Design and Architecture in the society today?

This introduction talk is about exploring Biophilia, Bio-Design and Biomimicry. 

  • Biophilia is the human tendency to interact and connect with life in nature. This is the Idea and philosophy that lay the foundation for Bio-Design and Biomimicry
  • Bio-Design is human design with living material. How to take the whole world away from the idea of human mastering nature in to a industrial machine and instead follow the natural processes of organic materials not only to cut waste but make them renewable and sustainable.
  • Biomimicry is design inspired by the way biology have solved problems and functional challenges.

In this talk we will talk about the positive shift from industrial age to the ecological age, how the knowledge and processes is used in the world today. We will explore how nature have shaped and perfected processes and structures for many millions of years and what we can learn from that.

Furthermore we will explain how individuals and organisations can harness the influence of Bio-philia-design-mimicry on human response and behaviour in all areas of life, whether it be architecture, design, film, digital, therapy, health or well being.

It will also include tangible material sample boards.
