Biomimicry: Going Back to Basics Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 8:00 am - Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 4:00 pm Location: SDG&E Energy Innovation Center (SDEIC) - Map ItBiomimicry offers a holistic and deeply rooted method to achieving true sustainability. Nature embodies more than four billion years of experience perfecting the designs and behaviors that enable organisms and living systems to thrive. In this exciting full-day workshop designed and developed by a biologist and urban planner and an architectural designer both professionally trained in biomimicry and sustainable building design, we will teach participants how to solve real life design challenges by applying nature's design successes. We will utilize lecture, case studies, and several small- and large-group activities to hone in on the power of biomimicry. As a planning and design approach for single and multi-building developments or as an auxiliary tool for green building projects, this workshop will provide you with new tools, knowledge and inspiration to design for sustainability and beyond. This course is great for architects, planners, engineers, owners, developers, students, and educators.
The course is pre-approved for 7 AIA CE credits and 7 USGBC CMP hours.
