Key takeaways

Recent innovations in building design have been inspired by nature's ingenuity, whether from the structure of termite mounds or the fabric of tree canopies.

Biomimicry can aid in regenerative building design, which goes further than mitigating the environmental impact of buildings by seeking to heal the damage humans have done.

Regenerative building design is not just about engaging with nature and healing the physical environment, but also driving local support with any construction project.
