All Together Now: Applying Biomimicry to Your Practice

Architecture is inherently collaborative. Biomimicry—the conscious emulation of nature's genius—can guide the design of more efficient buildings while improving our work relationships, in and out of the profession.


This course will showcase innovative biomimetic tools and cover how architects can bring scientists to the design table. Learn from those who know nature best to broaden the potential solution space.

In addition, you'll observe new architectural tools that can bring biome-specific, abstracted design principles to anyone's practice.

Learning objectives

  • Build your biomimicry knowledge and understand its history and development.
  • Recognize the different types of relationships found in nature and within your architectural practice.
  • Learn how to include the science community into your design process and how to incorporate cutting edge-technology to aid biomimetic designs.
  • Understand the process of translating biology into abstracted design principles.
