The Biomimicry Center at ASU

The Biomimicry Center at ASU is a joint effort between ASU and Biomimicry 3.8, to facilitate biomimicry education, research, and outreach. The center offers two graduate-level online programs and are in the process of rolling out an undergraduate on-campus program. By its very nature, biomimicry is transdisciplinary, so the center fosters collaborations on campus and works with different schools and centers, and also with companies such as Biomimicry 3.8. The center is a diverse group with expertise in a broad range of disciplines.

Exquisite Observation: Learning How To See and Innovate from Nature

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s saper vedere (“knowing how to see”), participants will learn from nature’s genius. They will practice their observation skills and see how the natural world can inspire design, as it did with da Vinci, and dig deeper to see how biomimicry can lead to sustainable design.
