Biomimicry is a new discipline that studies nature’s best ideas and imitates them to solve human problems. Applications range widely, from architecture, product design, and engineering, to software development, communication systems and organizational evolution.

Dayna Baumeister, PhD, co-founder of the Biomimicry Guild, and a team of biologists will lead a journey of discovery through an evening lecture and full-day workshop.

Who should attend?
architects, designers, landscape architects, engineers, planners, students and others curious about learning from nature and working toward a sustainable world

AIA-COTE will offset travel emissions via or and encourages voluntary offsetting by participants.
