Date:Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 6:30 p.m.
Location: Wood Auditorium, Columbia University, New York
Sponsored By:The Steel Institute of New York
Presented by Grimshaw’s Andrew Whalley, with responses by Amale Andraos, Lise Anne Couture, and Laurie Hawkinson of Columbia GSAPP, Design Inspired by Nature will explore a series of themes that explain biomimicry, biophilia, ecosystems, and other natural phenomena through the work and research done within the Grimshaw studios. Nature has long been a source of inspiration for the architectural solutions which have brought acclaim to the practice, and it is this close but not always obvious connection that are imparted within. Design Inspired by Nature is at once documentation of Grimshaw’s nature-inspired projects and a representation of the unique presentation of the practice’s current work.
