Nature inspired design thinking derives organic and sustainable design ideas and solutions by looking at natures way of answering similar design challenges through animal and plant adaptations. Its sort of referring to the knowledge bank of nature using patterns and processes that have evolved naturally as adaptations to life over billions of years.
Why study Nature?
Nature provides us with constant inspiration to build innovative products and solutions. Evolution has answered many complex problems through adaptations in animals and plants to suit the habitats that they live in. while it takes a really long time for evolution, our modern industry demands innovations to happen against a timeline complex solutions that need to be holistic, differentiated, and viable yet meet an ever-increasing market demand schedule. looking at solutions evolved in nature can help us leapfrog, if not pole-vault, this innovation cycle which is WHY we believe there is no better design mentor.
How does this help you?
This learning sojourn aims at doing much more than just looking at the shape of a flower or dragonfly and becoming artistically inspired. here, you'll be immersed into the world of nature to query and understand its secret myriad ways of solving problems. You will be guided on a design thinking process to really convert that data into useful strategies. It's a methodology that's being used by some of the biggest companies and innovative universities in the world. You will gain a fresh perspective on how the world around us does, can and should work. After the workshop, you will be well on your way to empathize with nature, think design, involve nature in design ideation, design organically, and most amazingly see patterns and meaning to life around you.
Who can attend this workshop?
While it is directly applicable to designers and innovators managers, team leaders, engineers, and entrepreneurs can also gain significant value from it.
