From material engineering and product design, to business models and infrastructure development, nature has derived solutions that can spark innovation. Biomimicry takes inspiration from nature to address human challenges. The concept rests on the idea that many of the challenges that business faces have already been solved in nature.

To integrate biomimicry into your design process, answer the following questions:

  1. What challenge am I trying to address?
  2. How does nature address this challenge?
  3. Does this solution account for context (how, where, and by whom the solution will be used)?
