Biomimetics is a theme that is part of the contest series ArchWeekly, a new brand of journal competitions inviting participants to engage in critical conversations on selected themes from several disciplines of architecture and design.
Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating natural patterns and strategies. We mimic these strategies found in nature to solve human design solutions in every field. Biomimetic architecture uses nature as its source of inspiration for its aesthetic resemblance as well as for its functional principles. The inspiration can be as simple as a form and as complex as an ecosystem.
Humans have managed to address mimicry in architecture over years. It intersects biology and technology in buildings at many levels.
The brief aims to open a dialogue to foster nature inspired solutions in architecture through stories, accounts or even observations.
