This film introduces biomimicry as a discipline and briefly describes how Exploration used this biologically inspired approach to radically rethink office design. The team, which included a biologist (Professor Julian Vincent), analysed over a hundred different biological organisms in search of new solutions. Daylight became one of the key drivers for the form of the building and examples such spookfish eyes and brittlestars provided inspiration. The end result is a scheme that would be almost entirely naturally lit and, if built, would be one of the lowest energy offices in the world.
