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.
