Biophilia and Biomimicry with Bill Browning

Hawthorne Valley welcomes Bill Browning to the Hudson Valley! Join us as Bill discusses Terrapin Bright Green’s latest work and research in biophilia and bio-inspired innovation.

Humans have an innate biological connection to nature. How do we use that connection to create places to support our health and well-being? What can we learn from Nature that can applied not only to the spaces that we inhabit, but to the technologies that fill them? For 4 billion years, organisms have been successfully adapting to changing environments, building materials, creating forms, and organizing complex systems. Their blueprints are scattered throughout Nature, waiting for us to find them.

This rare opportunity allows us to hear from one of the green building and real estate industry’s foremost thinkers and strategists and an advocate for sustainable design solutions, Bill Browning, Founding Partner, Terrapin Bright Green. His expertise has been sought out by organizations as diverse as Fortune 500 companies, leading universities, non-profit organizations, the U.S. military, and foreign governments.
