Biomimicry – Eleven Magazine’s Architecture and Design Competition

Eleven Magazine recently launched the first edition of Biomimicry – an architecture and design competition focused on nature-inspired innovation.

The call is open for nature-inspired designs in the fields of Architecture, Design, Technology and Fashion that showcase innovation and biomimicry practices.

The winning project will be awarded with £2,000 and will become part of Eleven’s Hall of Fame. Additionally, one Runner Up project will be awarded with £400, six (6) Honourable Mentions will be selected and a People’s Choice Award will be announced. All awarded teams will be published in Eleven Magazine and Eleven’s media partners.

Designs can be existing prototypes or new conceptual ideas.

Today, we face a world of challenges in our society. For designers, challenges become opportunities to innovate. But in an era of renewed urgency towards a more sustainable future, how can nature inspire the next generation of designers?

Nature is a balanced ecosystem. By studying its designs, one can extract clever ways of problem solving, which we – as humans – can then translate into our own contexts. Because this is a way of emulating natural processes, Biomimicry assures a more sustainable approach to man-made change; one that is much more in sync with the world we inhabit.

The Competition is open to both Students and Professionals.
