human-nature (re)connection & regenerative built environments
Biomimicry Australia draws inspiration from nature’s forms, processes and interconnected systems to co-create regenerative design solutions that create conditions conducive to life.
Biophilic Design seeks to (re)Connect humans with Nature through the design of the places where we live, work, play and learn.
Besides Biomimicry, our capabilities include: Living Building Challenge Facilitation and advice, Green Star Accredited Professional services, One Planet Living Facilitation, Ecotourism advice and ESD Opportunities Reports
Workshops & Presentations
Biomimicry Australia creates workshops and experiences to educate people about Biomimicry and to encourage (re)Connection with Nature.
Biomimicry Australia is a collective seeking to create a buzz about biomimicry’s potential to inspire innovation.
We humbly seek to better understand the organisms that call Australia home, with whom our survival is intertwined and interdependent, and to learn from them how to better adapt to life in this beautiful, challenging country of drought and flooding rains.
