Building Skins Inspired By Biology

Neri Oxman: At the Frontier of Ecological Design
Special Program

What: Biology inspires Neri Oxman. Working at the interface of environmental design, science, and art, Oxman is inventing the future of energy-efficient building materials. A Presidential Fellow at MIT's Department of Architecture, Oxman is inventing novel ways to design, fabricate, assemble, and maintain building "skins" so they can respond to load, light, and heat simultaneously. Think buildings that breathe, sweat, and grow. "I believe that, within two decades, buildings will be designed and constructed as biological tissues," says Oxman.

Where: On display at the Museum of Science, Boston in the Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Blue Wing, Level 1. For more info visit.
