This session will introduce participants to the more relevant and yet mysterious elements of architecture and the architecture of life; specifically Sacred Geometry, Biomimicry and Ecomimicry. I will then introduce some lesser known architects, designers, and researchers who use these concepts and structures in their own work in order to make some predictions about the future of design in relation to sustainability.
1. Participants will consider the history of human interaction with natural cycles and patterns; namely Sacred Geometry and Cellular Structure.
2. Participants will explore the several design trends in relation to natural cycles and patterns; namely Biomimicry and Ecomimicry.
3. Participants will reflect on what current technology has to offer us when coupled with an understanding of ancient systems for sustainability.
