Alphabet of Life – Nature’s Learning Lab

Exhibition June 23 – October 6, 2018

Werkraumhouse Andelsbuch

 

 

 

 

What design principles might we learn from nature that can be applied to designing, producing and managing life in a resource-efficient and sustainable way? The exhibition tells the story of a tree’s eco-system and thereby demonstrates nature’s strategies and patterns that have been envolving for more than 3.8 thousand million years.

 

The audience is introduced to the framework and the practice of biomimicry by learning from ordinary and innovative applications in various crafts and design professions. This transdisciplinary exhibition project is underpinned by extensive collaborative research and oriented toward educating all stakeholders. Thus, the exhibition brings together science, crafts and artistic production in an
inspiring learning lab for the whole family.

The Werkraumhaus designed by Peter Zumthor as a multi-functional building becomes the stage and the handicrafts the actors in a continually changing play of daylight and artificial light. Stage flood- and spotlights generate an immaterial and atmospheric architecture of light, mount the objects in the space, infuse life into their surfaces and forms, and trace a graphical shadowplay on the floor of the building.
