Biomimicry and Architecture
Can you imagine asking a ground squirrel for advice on the optimal thickness of adobe walls?  Can you envision consulting a lotus leaf for guidance on how to make a surface that is completely self-cleaning?

BIOMIMICRY is the art of looking to nature for inspiration in solving human design challenges.  Nature has developed incredibly graceful and effective solutions in response to all manner of design constraints and demands.
