Reverse engineering marries design and nature to create architectural marvels

Reverse engineering of nature has successfully paved the way for creative innovations. A new era of design is emerging where the built environment imitates nature’s processes.

The concept is simple: Take natural objects apart to figure the functionality behind them. Designers are painstakingly aiming to understand nature’s nuances, from the largest eco-system to a basic plant structure – for example, studying the significance of a leaf’s functionality and its ability to contribute to a rainforest’s larger purpose.

Biomimicry designs have inspired the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Daniel K. Inouye Regional Center in Hawaii. In designing its architecture and building systems, it was inspired by the region’s biological eco-system.

Will Mother Nature continue to inspire sustainable architectural marvels?
