The Biomimetic City and Sustainability

by phillipsauve on March 7, 2011

There is a lot we can learn from nature, and that is what the science of biomimicry is all about.  Buildings eat up the majority of our resources and thus are the area where we can effect the most change.

But it’s also not enough simply to just make a couple of green buildings. Entire cities can be planned based on the ecology of the landscape so as not to degrade the natural environment.

Over at 2ndgreenrevolution today, I discuss how using biomimicry in buildings (ex: a building modeled after a termite mound) and cities can bring us closer to a sustainable living.  Check it out here.
