Highly recommended post from our architecture ninjas.
The core idea is that nature, imaginative by necessity, has already solved many of the problems we are grappling with. Animals, plants, and microbes are the consummate engineers. They have found what works, what is appropriate, and most important, what lasts here on Earth. This is the real news of biomimicry: After 3.8 billion years of research and development, failures are fossils, and what surrounds us is the secret to survival.

  1. Dear:

    I am a passionate advocate of Biomimicry and have seen you trhough the web.

    I have been developing a project that is precisely around the issue of sustainability. Please look at the attachments.

    I am loking for a partner or partners to develop this project. I have the construction permits and the local government payas back 50 % of the investments, plus many other incentives. The investmment can be very low. I am the owner of the land but I need a developer or someone who can bring the necesary capital.

    Pleae let me know if we can work together on this project or you can connect me with someone that can be interested. Hacienda Verde is an ideal place to show and inspire sustainable design and Biomimicry principles.

    best,

  2. Dear Sir,

    I am basically an architect and did my masters in environmental planning. My architecture thesis project was “Biomimicry in slum rehabilitation”, may I know where do you want to start your project as I will be staying at London from January 2010.
