Exhibition “Biomimicry, Designs by Mother Nature”

Exhibition concept, design and curatorship in Barcelona, London, Lisbon and Shanghai
Roca Gallery, Roca S. A.


The exhibition “Biomimicry, Designs by Mother Nature” explains how nature becomes an inspiration for our society.

(Bios = ’life’; mimesis = ’imitate’): Biomimetics consists of copying, imitating or emulating the forms or functional solutions of particular animal and plant species or natural systems. Copying natural forms, replicated natural functions and reproduced natural systems help designers, engineers, architects, and business leaders meet design challenges by creating attractive, efficient and functional products and buildings. The mimicry of natural processes, materials and solutions is an inexhaustible source of future designs and is one of society’s routes to development and innovation.
