Biology inspired office design. Learnings from a 3.8 billion year R&D project
Nature has been perfecting resource efficiency, closed-loop design and energy economy for billions of years. It’s time we started learning some of its lessons. Michael will reveal how bio-mimicry can empower us to create effective workspaces that maximise resources, regenerate waste and lower construction and running costs. He’ll challenge us to face the threat of climate change head on, and by creating visionary working environments that rejuvenate the planet and the bottom line.
Michael is a pioneer of regenerative design and biomimicry, He established his firm Exploration Architecture in 2007 to focus on high-performance buildings for the circular economy, focusing on environmentally sustainable projects that take their inspiration from nature. He cut his teeth on the revolutionary Eden Project. His book, Biomimicry in Architecture has been a RIBA best-selling title.
