Biomimicry in Architecture
Michael Pawlyn is one of many who are looking to nature for inspiration and solutions. Biomimicry—design inspired by the way functional challenges have been solved in biology—Pawlyn argues is one of the best solutions for creating high-performance architecture, and creating a positive future in general as humankind shifts from the industrial age to the ecological age.
Join Pawlyn as he presents a number of projects that illustrate what can be achieved by using biological adaptations as a source of inspiration including buildings that are more efficient, better for people, and restore our relationship with our home.
This will air on Friday March 2nd at 10 AM and 8 PM here on 88.3 FM KCPW.
Each week KCPW brings you an insightful and refreshing hour of analysis of the world around you. Sometimes, this is a special documentary produced in our studios, sometimes it’s a collaboration with our community partners and sometimes it’s a hand-picked piece, produced by an outside source.
