This book discusses the most significant ways in which design has been applied to sustainability challenges using an evolutionary perspective. It puts forward an innovation framework that is capable of coherently integrating multiple design for sustainability (DfS) approaches developed so far. It is now widely understood that design can and must play a crucial role in the societal transformations towards sustainability. Design can in fact act as a catalyst to trigger and support innovation, and can help to shape the world at different levels: from materials to products, product–service systems, social organisations and socio-technical systems. This book offers a unique perspective on how DfS has evolved in the past decades across these innovation levels, and provides insights on its promising and necessary future development directions. For design scholars, this book will trigger and feed the academic debate on the evolution of DfS and its next research frontiers. For design educators, the book can be used as a supporting tool to design courses and programmes on DfS. For bachelor’s and master’s level design, engineering and management students, the book can be a general resource to provide an understanding of the historical evolution of DfS. For design practitioners and businesses, the book offers a rich set of practical examples, design methods and tools to apply the various DfS approaches in practice, and an innovation framework which can be used as a tool to support change in organisations that aim to integrate DfS in their strategy and processes.

"The practice of biomimetic design, defined as the application of biologically inspired design for the advancement of technology, is ancient; however, the organization of the field as a scientific discipline is recent and ongoing. In the past two decades, more disciplines are embracing biomimetic approaches as a successful way to stimulate innovation in their fields, one of these disciplines is architecture. Biologically inspired design in architecture has, in addition, the potential to address present anthropogenic environmental challenges, some of which are directly or indirectly caused by the built environment. In this context, nature is perceived as a vast database of design solutions from which to learn and obtain inspiration. However, systematic methods for accessing nature's designs and successfully transferring them into architectural objects are still incipient. Reliable and reproducible methods are fundamental for the dissemination of biomimetic design in professional and academic environments and constitute the cornerstone to building the discipline of biomimetic architecture. In order to address this gap, this thesis presents a novel ecosystem-based method for biomimetic design in architecture, the ecomimetic method. Biologically inspired design can mimic one organism and its parts or the behavior of a group of organisms, but it is also possible to mimic the multiple and complex interactions that occur in ecological systems. It appears that ecosystems and buildings share some interesting features; for example, they both are open thermodynamic systems that need a constant inflow of energy to maintain a steady state. Buildings, like ecosystems, are made of numerous different components that interact in non-linear ways, therefore producing complex dynamics.The ecomimetic method presented follows a problem-based approach and displays distinctive characteristics in each one of its design phases. The first phase requires the definition of an architectural design goal using thermodynamic language and the second phase suggests how to select an ecosystem that fits that design goal. In the third phase, two transdisciplinary tools (the Energy System Diagrams and a system dynamics software) are introduced to abstract the qualitative and quantitative organization of the ecosystem. In this phase, non-ecologists gain a deeper understanding of the ecosystem's functions and processes so that, in the following phase, they become capable of establishing functional correlations between ecosystemic and architectural components. During phase five, a building system is designed that reproduces some aspects of the ecosystem's processes and, finally, its performance is assessed during the last design phase.Three case studies were developed to evaluate the ecomimetic method. The first one studied the regulation of temperature and humidity in the ecosystem of a leaf-cutting ant, which inspired a breathable building envelope as a design solution. The second exercise focused on freshwater marshes and mimicked their water quality improvement processes to design a modular building block for wastewater treatment. The last case explored a variety of processes in maple forest ecosystems to produce three mimicked solutions. The ecomimetic building models reduced considerably the estimated energy use when compared to actual and benchmark building designs, and in all cases the solutions proposed included innovative architectural components.The ecomimetic method is presented here as a reliable tool for building design with great potential for addressing environmental challenges. Its implementation in academic and professional environments can be further broadened through the development of workshops, university-level courses, and comprehensive software tools to facilitate the design process." --

This book provides the readers with a timely guide to the application of biomimetic principles in architecture and engineering design. As a result of a combined effort by two internationally recognized authorities, the biologist Werner Nachtigall and the architect Göran Pohl, the book describes the principles which can be used to compare nature and technology, and at the same time it presents detailed explanations and examples showing how biology can be used as a source of inspiration and “translated” in building and architectural solutions (biomimicry). Even though nature cannot be directly copied, the living world can provide architects and engineers with a wealth of analogues and inspirations for their own creative designs. But how can analysis of natural entities give rise to advanced and sustainable design? By reporting on the latest bionic design methods and using extensive artwork, the book guides readers through the field of nature-inspired architecture, offering an extraordinary resource for professional architects, engineers, designers and urban planners, as well as for university teachers, researchers and students. Natural evolution is seen throughout the book as a powerful resource that can serve architecture and design by providing innovative, optimal and sustainable solutions.

Applying Properties of Animals Skins to Inspire Architectural Envelopes Biology influences design projects in many ways; the related discipline is known as biomimetics or biomimicry. Using the animal kingdom as a source of inspiration, Ilaria Mazzoleni seeks to instill a shift in thinking about the application of biological principles to design and architecture. She focuses on the analysis of how organisms have adapted to different environments and translates the learned principles into the built environment. To illustrate the methodology, Mazzoleni draws inspiration from the diversity of animal coverings, referred to broadly as skin, and applies them to the design of building envelopes through a series of twelve case studies. Skin is a complex organ that performs a multitude of functions; namely, it serves as a link between the body and the environment. Similarly, building envelopes act as interfaces between their inhabitants and external elements. The resulting architectural designs illustrate an integrative methodology that allows architecture to follow nature. "Ilaria Mazzoleni, in collaboration with biologist Shauna Price, has developed a profound methodology for architectural and design incentives that anticipates and proposes novel ways to explore undiscovered biological inspirations for various audiences." —Yoseph Bar-Cohen

This book comprises a first survey of the Collaborative Research Center SFB-TRR 141 ‘Biological Design and Integrative Structures – Analysis, Simulation and Implementation in Architecture’, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft since October 2014. The SFB-TRR 141 provides a collaborative framework for architects and engineers from the University of Stuttgart, biologists and physicists from the University of Freiburg and geoscientists and evolutionary biologists from the University of Tübingen. The programm is conceptualized as a dialogue between the disciplines and is based on the belief that that biomimetic research has the potential to lead everyone involved to new findings far beyond his individual reach. During the last few decades, computational methods have been introduced into all fields of science and technology. In architecture, they enable the geometric differentiation of building components and allow the fabrication of porous or fibre-based materials with locally adjusted physical and chemical properties. Recent developments in simulation technologies focus on multi-scale models and the interplay of mechanical phenomena at various hierarchical levels. In the natural sciences, a multitude of quantitative methods covering diverse hierarchical levels have been introduced. These advances in computational methods have opened a new era in biomimetics: local differentiation at various scales, the main feature of natural constructions, can for the first time not only be analysed, but to a certain extent also be transferred to building construction. Computational methodologies enable the direct exchange of information between fields of science that, until now, have been widely separated. As a result they lead to a new approach to biomimetic research, which, hopefully, contributes to a more sustainable development in architecture and building construction.

From simple cases such as hook and latch attachments found in Velcro to articulated-wing flying vehicles, biology often has been used to inspire many creative design ideas. The scientific challenge now is to transform the paradigm into a repeatable and scalable methodology. Biologically Inspired Design explores computational techniques and tools that can help integrate the method into design practice. With an inspiring foreword from Janine Benyus, Biologically Inspired Design contains a dozen chapters written by some of the leading scholars in the transdisciplinary field of bioinspired design, such as Frank Fish, Julian Vincent and Jeannette Yen from biology, and Amaresk Chakrabarti, Satyandra Gupta and Li Shu from engineering. Based in part on discussions at two workshops sponsored by the United States National Science Foundation, this volume introduces and develops several methods and tools for bioinspired design including: Information-processing theories, Natural language techniques, Knowledge-based tools, and Functional approaches and Pedagogical techniques. By exploring these fundamental theories, techniques and tools for supporting biologically inspired design, this volume provides a comprehensive resource for design practitioners wishing to explore the paradigm, an invaluable guide to design educators interested in teaching the method, and a preliminary reading for design researchers wanting to investigate bioinspired design.

-To provide insight to the process which engages nature and design, this collection of work shines light on the educational methods currently being explored in China's top institutions Bio-inspired design is both simple and complex. Simple because it provides an easy reference to discuss ideas through a means we all can relate to and become inspired by - the natural world. The topic engages a spectrum of professionals, from environmental enthusiasts to design professionals and scientists. The complexity arises when we need to understand beyond what we see and understand how nature works. At many levels, we are still exploring how systems are inter-related and to decipher these relationships we have to look beyond the idealized inspiration. Throughout the world, research and development that focuses on bio-inspiration has been steadily increasing and is expected to continue to do so for the next two decades. Currently, China is one of the leaders in scholarly articles focusing on bio-inspiration. Although this topic is developing at an impressive rate, much of the public awareness of bio-inspiration and similar areas of research such as biomimetics and biomimicry is relatively unknown. Therefore, to provide insight into this process, this collection of work shines light on the methods currently being explored in China's top institutions.
