Nature is the ultimate designer...
Resourceful, ingenious, sustainable, beautiful; Nature is the ultimate teacher in innovation. The answers to mankind’s greatest challenges can often be found in its variety.
Some of the greatest minds throughout history, from Leonardo da Vinci to Albert Einstein, have been inspired and guided by its systems and creations. Some of mankind’s biggest inventions have come from observing nature.
Today, we face a world of challenges in our society.
How can nature inspire the next generation of architects, designers and innovators?
Eleven is excited to announce the first edition of BIOMIMICRY: an international design challenge opened to students and professionals around the world focused on the topic of Nature-inspired creativity.
We invite thinkers, architects, designers, artists, academics and visionaries from around the world to imagine innovative solutions in the field of Architecture, Technology, Design, and Fashion inspired by Nature.
The design and production of materials, structures, and/or systems that are modelled on and inspired by biological entities and processes.
