Design by Nature: Biomimetics



Ceren Bogac design

Since the “flying machine” sketches of Leonardo da Vinci, humans observed the nature and discovered new technologies that are biologically inspired engineering. This workshop challenges the participants, after a short brain discussion sessions to design and build a canopy by getting inspirations from nature, which will later aim to serve as a bar.

 The structure first aimed to be designed out of colorful plastic boxes which will also be lightened during the night time. Unfortunately since the available material could not be produced, the structure was constructed out of air-fill material (balloons).

The workshop took place during  2.5 days: 16, 17, 18 May 2012 (the structure was launched on late afternoon of 18th of May- after sun set).
