Exploring Radical Ecologies of Land Economics

The challenges of business resilience and optimization in the face of climate change, urbanization, and natural disasters are becoming more widespread, however, we can re-imagine and re-think how we create solutions to address these problems through inspiration and data from biological systems. Robin Bass, Team Lead of Google's Real Estate and Workplace Service Group will lead a discussion with practice leaders from HOK, Interface Carpets and Biomimicry 3.8 to share examples of how their companies have applied biological and ecological intelligence to solve some of the most vexing challenges facing the built environment. Robin will engage the panel and audience in this interactive roundtable session; providing project examples with measured results that have used design strategies from nature to drive positive impact and resilient solutions that go beyond the buildings to benefit employees and the communities in which they live.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how to add value and protect your real estate assets through an interactive round table process discussing building and environmental resiliency and optimizations.
  • Join the discussion on how the emerging practice of Biomimicry is defining a new relationship between biologists and built environment practitioners.
  • Design replicable strategies for the built environment using champion species related to their ecosystem realities.
