Explore nature-inspired experimental prototypes, consumer products, immersive installations and architectural constructions by sixty-two international design teams. Collaborations by scientists, engineers, advocates for social and environmental justice, artists, and philosophers engage with nature in innovative and ground-breaking ways, driven by a profound awareness of climate change and ecological crises as much as advances in science and technology.
