AMINA KHAN IN CONVERSATION WITH ARIANNE GELARDIN

Nature does it best. Forms and patterns in nature provide an original example of design that works—giving templates to power future human innovations and technologies. Designers, engineers, makers, and innovators can learn from billions of years of productive and efficient evolutionary experience.

Nature can teach us about sustainable technology and innovation. Author and journalist Amina Khan explains how natural patterns point the way to working smarter and not harder, and how the eye of a fly or mound of a termite can lead to technological advances in the very near future.

Join Arianne Gelardin, co-curator at StoreFrontLab, for a conversation with Amina about her new book, Adapt: How Humans Are Tapping into Nature's Secrets to Design and Build a Better Future.

This event is part of the Technology and Consciousness Series.
