Nature Informed Design

Nature-informed design collects data from natural elements, translating them into design that allows nature and humans to co-exist harmoniously in urban environments. One of the most significant outcomes of such research is achieving a low cost, low-resolution and accurate design tool kit for collecting such data from a specific location, for the fields of design and development.
