From Grimshaw Architects:

“Design Inspired by Nature will explore a series of themes that explain biomimicry, biophilia, ecosystems and other natural phenomena through the work and research done within the Grimshaw studios. Nature has long been a source of inspiration for the architectural solutions which have brought acclaim to the practice, and it is this close but not always obvious connection that are imparted within. Design Inspired by Nature is at once documentation of Grimshaw’s nature-inspired projects and a representation of the unique presentation of the practice’s current work.”
