Exploration Architecture founder Michael Pawlyn on biomimicry | Design for Life | Dezeen

In the second video of our Design for Life collaboration with Dassault Systmes, Exploration Architecture founder Michael Pawlyn explains how computational design tools allow architects to mimic the natural world in order to create buildings that positively contribute to the health of the environment. Pawlyn, founder of biomimicry-focussed practice Exploration Architecture, is the second designer to feature in a series of six videos as part of Design for Life, a content collaboration between Dezeen and Dassault Systmes that highlights designers who are using technology and research to build a better world. "Biomimicry is innovation inspired by nature," explains Pawlyn in the video, which was filmed by Dezeen at the architect's home studio in London. "At Exploration Architecture, we use biomimicry to rethink all sorts of building types and develop solutions that use resources much more efficiently," he continued. Exploration Architecture is known for projects that demonstrate the potentials of biomimicry, including a seawater-cooled greenhouse modelled on a beetle that harvests its own fresh water in a desert, and a concept for an office building that mimics the structure of a spookfish's eye to help maximise natural light.
