Engineering, biomimicry fusion creates pavilion that grows

The Elytra Filament Pavilion is now displaying in Germany. The pavilion, inspired by the hexagonal structures in beetle wings, is woven by a robot. This Inhabitat article mentions that real-time sensing data directs how the pavilion grows, opening the door for new thinking on how robots and engineering can help our designs evolve (as well as meet other Life’s Principles that seem incongruent with the built design).

Nature is Alive with Chemistry

In this pre-recorded webinar available on demand, Biomimicry 3.8 chemist Mark Dorfman unpacks the complexity of chemical science as he takes us on an illuminating tour of nature’s chemistry-based adaptations, including a deep dive into how we can “use life-friendly chemistry”–one of Life’s Principles that represent the main strategies and deep design lessons Life has evolved over 3.8 billion years in order to survive and thrive.
