Biomimetics in Architecture - Evolutionary Construction and Design
Biomimetics (or Bionics) taps nature's huge reservoir of structures,
process optimizations and functional solutions in order to find technical
applications of natural principles. The optimization of resource and energy
efficiency that took place in the evolution of all biological systems
is of special interest. It offers a great potential for more sustainability in
the economy. An essential part of the innovative power of biomimetics
is founded on the interaction between basic research in biology on the
one hand and the rising technical capabilities of nanotechnology, micro
systems technology, optoelectronics.
