BIOPHILIA AND BIOMIMICRY
Biophilia and biomimicry are two trends we’ve been seeing become more and more prominent in architecture and design all over the world. These concepts center around the human need to be in alignment with nature – by surrounding ourselves with plants and trees, and by imitating nature’s designs in everyday life.
We at Greenery are constantly experimenting with new technologies with the idea to take plant maintenance to the next level – not just the old fashioned bucket-in-hand anymore. This will makes plant care easier, and will also reduce cost to our clients.
Biophilia (lat.) = a love of life or living systems
The rich, natural pleasure that comes from being surrounded by living organisms.
– Edward O. Wilson, Biophilia (1984)
Biomimicry = imitating life
Biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems.
