International research suggests that the built environment may be responsible for at least a third of global green house gas (GHG) emissions and that measures should be implemented to mitigate these. It is also the built environment, as the principle habitat of humans that will need to adapt to climate change impacts to keep people comfortable and safe. Architects and designers may need to explore new ideas that are reflective of a shift in both climate and in expectations of the built… Expand

Biomimetic design for climate change adaptation and mitigation
This article examines biomimicry, where organisms or ecosystems are mimicked in human design, as a means to either mitigate the causes of climate change that the built environment is responsible for,Expand
Biomimetic Theory and Building Technology: Use of Aboriginal and Scientific Knowledge of Spinifex Grass
Abstract There is currently much interest in designing new materials that mimic particular properties of plants. For example, self-cleaning materials have been developed from structures on the leafExpand
Exploration of Climate Change in Architectural Design Studio
Many researches reveal that climate change is a significant public issue. With the rising awareness of climate change impacts by both national and international bodies, building climate resilienceExpand
Barriers hindering biomimicry adoption and application in the construction industry
Attaining the goal of sustainability in the construction industry is a demanding task that comes with numerous challenges and complexities. To overcome these, biomimicry, as the study and emulationExpand
REGENERATIVE SUSTAINABILITY IN SOUTH AFRICA THROUGH MIXED IN-COME HOUSING DEVELOPMENT
The provision of adequate and regenerative sustaina ble housing remains a key priority for the South Africa government. The South African Gove rnm nt has since 1994 initiated and implemented severalExpand
Lived experiences of Passivhaus occupants using a grounded approach
The Passivhaus standard is a building methodology that was established in Germany in the 1990s. It uses a passive design strategy to achieve built environment comfort with minimum energy consumption.Expand

An Architectural Love of the Living: Bio-Inspired Design in the Pursuit of Ecological Regeneration and Psychological Wellbeing
TLDR
The relationship between biophilic and biomimetic approaches to architectural design as two aspects of bio-inspired design are examined, and the implications of such an approach are discussed and the scientific basis of such a process is investigated. Expand
How can cities mitigate and adapt to climate change?
Scientific research and many practical projects are showing that global climate change can be partially mitigated if the world’s big cities substantially reduce their environmental impact.Expand
