Interpreting Nature’s Genius
Ever wonder what makes a peacock’s feathers so vibrant? Or how ants can communicate along complex scent trails to find and distribute food? How do honeybees use swarm logic to regulate the internal hive temperature? And why do trees and other plants grow in a similar and repeating patterns?
These questions encompass the underlying inquiry and ethos of biomimicry, looking to nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies to help solve our human challenges. Nature has 3.8 billion years of problem-solving experience, many of these problems are the same challenges humans are facing today. There’s a “living library” outside made up of animals, plants, microbes and fungi (to name a few) that hold the secrets to success for all life on this planet.
