  • Brooklyn Botanic Garden 1000 Washington Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11225 United States (map)

How does a cactus protect itself from the harsh desert sun? Why do tropical plants often have purple pigment in their leaves? Over the course of 3.8 billion years of life on earth, plants have developed ingenious strategies to survive and thrive. The design concept of biomimicry looks to these natural processes and structures, using them as inspiration to tackle our human challenges. In this interactive class you will learn the basics of biomimicry design, while exploring the “living library” outside that holds the secrets to success for all life on this planet.
