Biomimicry and Biophilic Design: pathways to connect people and nature

Event Date: 
09/15/2011 - 5:30pm - 9:00pm
Event Location: 
Downstairs at Town Hall
Eighth and Seneca
Seattle, WA
United States
Phone: 206 443 8464

Over hundreds of millions of years, nature has evolved elegant and
creative solutions to many design problems. We’ll explore how using
biomimicry (mimicking nature) and biophilic design (increasing
our exposure to nature within our built environment) can help us to
create products, buildings, and communities whose relationships
to nature are positive and robust.
