Description


Bio-Inspiration in Design

Fran Conrad

The Design it lectures are open to industry and the public exploring conceptual and practical approaches to design. Each monthly lecture is delivered by an AUB researcher and practitioner and examines a topic that offers insight and practical pathways for innovation.

How can nature help us design better?

Naturally occurring ecosystems hold a vast library of strategies, processes and technologies of incredible value to designers. AUB senior design lecturer and entrepreneur, Fran Conrad, explores bio-inspiration for innovation and sustainable development by examining real-world case studies and theories of nature as inspiration, mentor and provider of tools for design.

As well as leading the new MA in Design and Innovation at Arts University Bournemouth, Fran has helped to found various initiatives and companies that develop commercially viable products with sustainability at the core.

Schedule

Refreshments will be provided on arrival at 1800 and chatting to fellow participants is encouraged. The lecture will begin at 1830 and finish at 1930.
