Ecosystem vision of Education
Biomimicry draws its inspiration from nature to emulate its best designs effectively. This new science imitates the forms, processes and systems of nature to create innovative and respectful solutions with the ecosystems.
This is accomplished by observing, analyzing and finally applying a mimesis of one (and sometimes several) of the three main functions.
By imitating the morphology of various living organisms, teams of scientists have developed, for example:
The Shinkansen bullet train was designed with the imitation of the shape of the kingfisher’s head.Thanks to the sharp shape of its beak, the kingfisher is the bird that is best adapted to moving between different environments (air-water). This mimesis makes it possible to reduce the impact on the train when it drives from an open-air space into a tunnel where the air is denser.
An optimized wind turbine system based on the shape of humpback whale fins, that reduces resistance to the the wind.
