Biomimicry and geodesign

Janine Benyus gave a fascinating and moving talk at the Geodesign Summit today. Her firm, Biomimicry 3.8, looks for new ways that design can be informed by natural processes and forms.  This isn't as much about look like nature as it is functioning like nature, especially in measurable ways.

To help others take a step forward, Benyus has developed a non-profit that is populating  AskNature.org with information and guidance.

Since the Geodesign Summit video might not get posted immediately, you could instead go back and watch one of her old TED videos on biomimicry.
