Program Description:

The pre-alpine ecology of the Taleggio Valley, Italy, lends itself to the study of natural systems that will serve as the backdrop for a bio-inspired design project. Through the observation of the flora and fauna of the valley, students will translate the learned principles to the design of sustainable building elements. Students will be challenged to understand how the environment has shaped the evolution of organisms as well as the design of human constructions. The final project will be informed by observing the adaptations of organisms in order to draw analogies between natural and designed elements.
