Biomimicry: A Walking Exploration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Nature is constantly evolving and creating networks to survive in a way that enriches the entire community. This session is a walking exploration through nature in the heart of urban Seattle. Learn how to interpret nature’s lessons with three leading biomimicry experts and apply them to design challenges in your own community. The session will be held at Freeway Park, a short walk from the conference venue. Tools will be provided to help identify relevant design challenges, interpret how nature is addressing them, and translate them into sustainable design solutions.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a "field trip" session that will gather onsite (in the "Greenwood" room) for 15 minutes, prior to heading out on the walking tour.
