How Biomimicry is Shaping the Nature of our Buildings | Sustainable Cities Collective | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
When you think of nature as it applies to building design, however, there is a new “nature” within a building. It is a concept termed biomimicry, which literally means to mimic life.

 

Applied biomimicry can be utilized in three ways or in a combination of these three ways:

Form - such as mimicking dragonfly wings to create lightweight structures;

 

Processes -such as mimicking photosynthesis to capture solar energy;

 

Systems-such as building wall systems that mimic the homeostasis in organisms which allows them to regulate their internal conditions such as temperature
