Category: General / Misc
BIOMIMICRY Nature as Model, Measure, and Mentor BI-O-MIM-IC-RY ( From the Greek bios, life, and mimesis, imitation) Nature as model. Biomimicry is a new science that studies Nature’s models and then imitates or takes inspiration from these designs and processes to solve human problems.

BIOMIMICRY Nature as Model, Measure, and Mentor

Slide 2

BI-O-MIM-IC-RY ( From the Greek bios, life, and mimesis, impersonation) Nature as model. Biomimicry is another science that studies Nature’s models and after that emulates or takes motivation from these plans and procedures to take care of human issues. Nature as measure. Biomimicry utilizes a natural standard to judge “rightness” of our advancements. Nature as guide. Biomimicry is another method for survey and esteeming Nature.

The Biomimicry Guild’s Functional Taxonomy Function is the turn between life’s insight and what we are attempting to accomplish deliberately. What capacity do you need your outline to perform? How does life perform that capacity? The Biomimicry Guild has created a composed accumulation of capacities that covers everything that life does and that we may need an outline to do. The capacities are assembled by likeness so it’s called a scientific classification (a sorted out arrangement of naming) of capacities.

Slide 12

Identify the Real Challenge Don’t ask “ what would you like to design?” (a ventilation system) Ask “what do you need your outline to do ?” (make individuals feel cooler) Ask “why?” various times: (Challenge: Air conditioners utilize heaps of vitality on the grounds that they utilize warmth to dry desiccants that dehumidify air and afterward they must cool the warmed air.) Why use desiccants? (To dry the air) Why do the units dry air? (Since high stickiness makes air feel hotter) Why are they utilizing warmth? (To drive the dampness out of the desiccant so it can be reused) So, you need an outline to haul dampness out of air and cool the air!

Slide 13

Develop a Design Brief for the Needed Function Biologize the Question: Identify capacities (i.e. reason, part, or utilization) How does Nature do that function? How does Nature not do that capacity? Reframe questions with extra essential words.

Slide 14

Develop a Design Brief for the Needed Function Define Operating Parameters; “Climate” conditions: (wet, dry, icy, hot, low/high weight, exceptionally variable, high/low UV,etc.) “Nutrient” conditions: (supplement poor =no $, supplement rich = heaps of accessible materials) “Social” conditions: (focused, agreeable) “Temporal” conditions: (progressive, static, developing, maturing) After characterizing working parameters, ask: “How does Nature do that capacity HERE? In these conditions?”

Slide 15

Integrate Life's Principles into the Design Brief Optimize as opposed to expand Locally adjusted and responsive Build in flexibility Leverage association Integrate cyclic procedures Use benevolent manufacturing

Slide 16

Find The Best Natural Models Go for a stroll outside Consider both strict and figurative models Comb the writing Brainstorm with Biologists

Slide 17

Identify Deep Patterns and Principles Look crosswise over found methodologies Look at the systems all in all Specific to your coveted capacity, what does every methodology have in like manner? How are they diverse?

Slide 18

Deepen the Conversation Are you emulating structure? Can you copy process? Will you mirror the biological community? Does the configuration “create conditions helpful for life”?

Slide 19

Evaluate your discoveries Can it adjust and develop? Thank your instructor (Nature) for the motivation

Slide 20

Nature as Mentor * Incredibly skillful universe * Nature’s living cases * Can live plentifully a nd improve where you live * Much more seasoned tutors have made sense of it * We can do likewise – JANINE BENYUS
