Few experiences are as humbling and tranquil as being in the heart of a quiet, pristine forest surrounded by the riches of nature's wisdom spanning millennia, from the ethereal bamboo groves of Japan to the lush rainforest variety of the Amazon and Borneo, to Germany's Black Forest. However, these transforming encounters in nature aren't limited to the great outdoors. Designing healthier, greener, and more eco-conscious houses that imitate natural ecosystems allows for the construction of sustainable environments where people may live and flourish as we spend more time at home.
Biomimicry's Impact on the Built Environment: Achieving a New Era of Global Wellness
The essential tenet of biomimicry is the vision of nature as the perfect model for completely understanding how nature's species have been able to successfully adapt to continually changing settings during more than 3.8 billion years of development. Because the built environment contributes for 40% of yearly worldwide CO2 emissions, it is critical to use nature's inherent capacity to modify the built environment via creative techniques.
Investments focused on continual improvements in building energy efficiency, as well as ensuring that existing systems are working in accordance with natural ecosystem design, are critical to minimizing CO2 emissions and decreasing energy consumption. Transitioning to a biomimicry-inspired low-carbon built environment future necessitates a systems thinking approach, which includes the development of unique material strategies that promote the use of low-carbon adaption and sustainable building designs.
The Eden Project, the world's largest greenhouse in Cornwall, United Kingdom, The Bio Intelligent Quotient (B.I.Q.) building in Hamburg, Germany, the landmark San Francisco Museum at the Mint, and the Eastgate Centre in Harare, Zimbabwe are all notable examples of applied biomimicry in the built environment.
The Eden Project (pictured above) employs sustainable and environmentally friendly materials in their Biome design, with hexagon and polygon forms made of ETFE (Ethyl tetrafluoroethylene - which requires less energy than glass production) and long-lasting modules derived from the study of carbon molecules, pollen grains, and radiolaria. Eden's initiatives are at the vanguard of worldwide restoration projects leading with biomimicry principles that actively establish organic links between humans and environment, with an emphasis on ethical suppliers, low waste production, and low carbon goods.
