This course provides an overview of biomimicry, the approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions by following nature’s strategies. We illustrate the relationship between today’s shading design principles and nature's solutions to light, heat, and glare control.
Learning objectives include:
Define the basic practices of biomimicry.
Discuss the application of biomimetic principles in design.
Identify the relationship between shading principles and nature’s solutions for heat, light, and glare control.
Conceptualize a preliminary design application for shading based on the principles of biomimicry.
