Biomimicry as a driving force for aesthetics, innovation and sustainable architecture Steven Ware

Humans are breaking with nature's laws in the way in which they fashion their habitat; altering the delicate balance of energy and matter which all species must maintain in order to be successful. Architects must face the challenge of establishing new practices which better synchronize building cycles with ecological cycles. The lecture will address and illustrate several conceptual bridges which may be found between architecture and biology.

Steven WARE is graduated in Architecture from the Architectural Association (London) and in Biology from Western University (Canada). Director and partner of Art and Build Paris and its R and D branch AB_lab, Steven is an expert in urban ecology, bio-adaptive architecture and smart materials. Art and Build's approach reconciles the fundamental processes behind the making of architecture - art and construction - generating a design process which is itself the synthesis of invention and rigor, of liberty and efficiency, and of creative construction. A serie of major projects, as the headquarters of Groupe Chèque Déjeuner (MIPIM Award winner in 2011) and of Thales Communications and Security (SIMI Awards nominee in 2012), positioned Art and Build office as a leader in sustainable development integrating innovative bio-adaptive principles. http://www.artbuild.eu/
