Topic: Biomimicry

Speaker: Kris Callori  

Presentation Info

Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies.  The goal is to create products, processes, and policies that are well-adapted to life on earth over the long haul.  The core idea is that nature has already solved many of the problems we are grappling with. Animals, plants, and microbes are the consummate engineers. After billions of years of research and development, failures are fossils, and what surrounds us is the secret to survival.  Join us to learn how Kris has been adapting the concept of biomimicry to the design of buildings in desert environments.
