A Biomimicry 3.8 alum Alessandra Araujo’s work was instrumental in helping to create a new kind of environmentally friendly hotel in Brazil. Araujo used biomimicry to inspired a host of hotel features, including bungalow shells mimicking the cooling features of a saguaro cactus and kitchen designs modeled after the self-cooling properties of toucan beaks. Read about all the awesome biomimicry inspired features of the Votu Hotel in this inHabitat article.
