Biomimetics – SummerLab 2023


Third edition of the summer course where you learn all about the science of biomimicry and principles of design bioinspired to help achieve innovation in the creative processes and design new realities.
With the help of:

Nature as an inspiration in the design process.

The summer course in BIOMIMICRY is a program of learning immersive in Nature, in the Natural Park of Networks, in Asturias.
Through different capsules training we will understand what is biomimicry, what are its applications and its working methodology.
We will learn to look at Nature with curiosity, and from the creative experimentation to find alternatives in the design process. Taking Nature as a model, it makes us rethink and rethink the future of design, using alternatives to the traditional production processes.
BIOMIMICRY is an experience for professionals and students who want to improve their creative processes, acquiring skills to transform the observation of the Nature of ideas that solve problems of design, also you will know about manufacturing techniques and digital craft for the manufacture of functional prototypes.

Why look to Nature?

We believe that progress towards societies ecologically sustainable the first step is to raise the awareness of people about the problems and the consequences that generate our demands and dynamics of the consumption current. As consumers, we are the problem and also the solution, because we have the power to change our way of consuming and slow down the waste, and waste that we generate.
Mankind must face up to a major transformation and change its relationship with Nature, through greater social and ecological consciousness.
The design is a powerful tool for carrying out this transformation, for this reason we propose environments for experimentation, looking for narratives that pose a better future.
A new way of thinking about the processes of creating, innovating in the resolution of the design challenges of a sustainable, circular and regenerative, using Nature as a guide.

Who is it for?
