Come and find out how biomimicry can help you come up with new sustainable solutions to your design challenges. We’ll have a playful hands-on workshop learning about how to get to sustainable innovation by taking inspiration from nature. This is about seeing both nature and your challenges from a different angle.

This is a multidisciplinary workshop so the more diverse the backgrounds we gather the better! Designers, architects and engineers will definitely benefit from this but we encourage anybody with a sense of curiosity to join us for a workshop alternating theory and hands on exercise. We will together find out how nature can influence your designs going either from a design challenge to biology or from the biology to finding design applications. We’ll be playing around with natural objects and brainstorming design ideas, putting the biomimicry methodology in action!
