Description: Learn about biomimicry in the context of Houston’s local ecosystem with leaders in the field and connect with others in our regional BiomimicryTX network. In this Backyard Biomimicry Workshop offered by the Biomimicry Group, you’ll co-learn with students and professionals of various disciplines about the foundations of biomimicry and equip yourself to approach our region’s most pressing design challenges by drawing inspirations from the natural world- found right in our own backyard!
Biomimicry, the discipline of applying nature’s principles to solve human problems, provides the means to achieve both environmental and economic goals. Many of the mechanisms and systems found in nature are highly efficient, eschew waste, and are sustainable in a virtually closed system. Biomimicry could be a major economic game changer. Biomimicry could represent a revolutionary change in our economy by transforming many of the ways we think about designing, producing, transporting, and distributing goods and services.
