Abstract

The demand for a focus on nature-oriented design education and the improvement of 21st century teaching skills has grown exponentially in recent years. Biomimicry addresses these needs but the lack of scientific research on didactic methodologies leaves teachers and students utilizing examples with little knowledge on how to start efficiently within the design process. This research structurally assesses how biomimicry is currently taught and learned, which difficulties arise and which applications are most useful, so that effective educational strategies are developed, evaluated and implemented. This ultimately increases the number of successful sustainable, circular designs produced by multi-disciplinary student teams.
