BiomimicryNYC board member and Biomimicry Chemist Mark Dorfman, as well as Founding Member and architect Janus Welton will speak to emerging design professionals at the ASID (American Association of Interior Designers) event this September.
Mark and Janus will share their experience as biomimicry practitioners in the fields of materials and design and architecture. As a biomimicry chemist, Mark has worked with companies looking to improve material performance and increase sustainability by taking cues from nature’s life-friendly chemistry. He will give an overview of biomimicry, describe the methodology he uses to find nature-inspired solutions to real-life challenges, provide some case examples, and paint a picture of where the field is heading.
Janus, a LEED certified architect, interior designer and educator will discuss nature’s time-tested designs that inspire innovation in the design process. She will share biomimicry products, case studies of biomimicry applied to the built environment and challenge you with a new design paradigm based on Nature’s forms, processes and systems.
