Biomimicry in Architecture

Michael Pawlyn
Michael Pawlyn is one of many who are looking to nature for inspiration and solutions. Biomimicry—design inspired by the way functional challenges have been solved in biology—Pawlyn argues is one of the best solutions for creating high-performance architecture, and creating a positive future in general as humankind shifts from the industrial age to the ecological age.
Join Pawlyn as he presents a number of projects that illustrate what can be achieved by using biological adaptations as a source of inspiration including buildings that are more efficient, better for people, and restore our relationship with our home.

Registration for this lecture is closed. Overflow seating may become available at 6:50 p.m. to standby guests in the order in which they arrive.
