Innovation in Design

Neri Oxman
Oxman's work fuses the disciplines of art, science, architecture, and ecology to form a new kind of discipline—one based on the lessons of biomimicry.
Join Oxman as she provides a glimpse into the future of performance-driven design and how it is literally reshaping our physical world. Avant-garde yet wholly accessible, Oxman makes a powerful and eloquent case for adapting sustainable, nature-derived concepts to tackle our most daunting challenges in design, business, society, the environment, and our daily lives.
