Biomimicry and Urban Design

By the year 2050 it is projected that 70% of the planet’s population will live in urban areas. With such accelerated urban expansion having little or nothing to do with life in the natural world, we are arguably on a trajectory that is incapable of supporting the massive population growth predicted for the world’s largest cities.

So what lessons can be learned from the natural environment and applied to urban design practices? How can nature influence and achieve a balanced lifecycle in the built environment?

Join the conversation at FORMS Summit as Biomimicry Frontier co-founder Jamie Miller discusses how applying the concepts of biomimicry to city planning can influence new modes of sustainability, modelling and development. By looking at future city design through the lens of natural ecosystem thinking, this talk investigates how biomimicry could create a new paradigm in city-building.
