Biomimicry Alberta at BUILDEX Calgary, Thursday Nov 7

Sharks, Termites and More of Nature’s Brilliance
BMO Centre, Calgary

Join Kira Hunt, Linda Selin and Micheal Williamson to learn about biomimicry and nature-informed strategies for the built environment. Register for session T06 at https://www.buildexalberta.com/en/home.html

“Today’s scientists, chemists, biologists, zoologists, architects, engineers, designers and many more are solving their challenges by looking to nature’s design. Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies for new ways of manufacturing and living that are well adapted to life on earth over the long haul. Designing, creating and building; whether spaces, places or things, can be directed and learned from the natural world. Nature holds a catalog of products within it. Each with nearly 3.8 billion years of research and development.”

Also – Mark your calendars for a second Calgary event January 31st, 2020 hosted in partnership with BUILDEX Alberta and the Calgary Public Library. More information to come!
