The Other Way: How can bio-inspired creative practices lead to sustainable innovation in design and architecture? Jane Scott participates in The Other Way, biodesign symposium at Central Saint Martins.
“If the 20th century relied on an oil hungry petro-chemical industry, the 21st century is rapidly shifting towards biological manufacturing and alternative bio-inspired design protocols. This symposium celebrates diverse creative practices that stimulate new approaches to sustainable innovation at the intersection of architecture, design, textiles, biology, biomimicry and permaculture.
How do we integrate biology in the design process? How do we reinvent architecture to adopt living materials? How can we programme adaptive textile materials derived from biomimicry principles? What can permaculture teach creative designers? How do we grow fluid animal-free leather? How do we train bacteria to produce a colour range? How do we incorporate meteorological phenomenon into architecture? How do we design for bio-circular manufacturing systems?” https://www.arts.ac.uk/colleges/central-saint-martins/collaborations/maison0
