To Innovate Is to Imitate


In just one century, technological and scientific progress has made unprecedented improvements in living conditions possible. Nonetheless, we are now realizing that these technical advances carried within them the seeds of many of today’s environmental and social problems.

A new scientific approach is opening the way to a new pattern of development that takes inspiration from the organization of ecosystems, or the way living systems function, and attempts to integrate these ideas into human technology. This is precisely what certain ARCHITECTS OF CHANGE are working on.

1. Janine Benyus (Biologist who popularized the term biomimcry, USA)
2. Mick Pearce (Architects for Peace, Australia)
3. Takao Furuno (Farmer, inventor of Duck Rice, Japan)
