“If a house were a thing made by nature…” – Aristotle

 

The Forum first reviews selected histories and philosophies of biomimesis, leading to fresh views in the approach and translation of nature as design in the age of Climate Change. This enquiry has recently been delved into through a workshop conducted recently in the School of Architecture and Built Environment in Singapore Polytechnic. The workshop seeks to discover possible biomimetic design solutions for the built environments through an intense ideation process with teams of students looking at different biomimetic strategies. Preliminary works from the workshop will be presented during the forum. Alternative approaches to biomimesis will be presented by speakers from both SP.ABE and SUTD.ASD.
