Petra Gruber is an architect with a strong interest in inter- and transdisciplinary design. Apart from her professional work as an architect, she holds a Ph. She taught Biomimetics in Energy Systems at the University of Applied Sciences in Villach, Austria, and held lectures and workshops at universities worldwide. Her research spans from projects for the European Space Agency on lunar base design informed by folding principles from nature to arts-based research on the translation of growth principles from nature into proto-architectural spatial solutions.
Dr. Petra Gruber
An overview of the present state of research in the relatively young scientific field of biomimetics shows the potential of this approach. The new discipline aims at innovation by making use of the subtle systems and solutions in nature which have evolved over millions of years. Approaches taken to transfer nature's principles to architecture have provided successful developments. The new approach presented in this book transfers the abstract concept of life onto the built environment. Strategic search for life's criteria in architecture delivers a new view of architectural achievements and makes visible the innovative potential, although that has not yet been exploited. A selection of case studies illustrates the diversity of possible starting points: from vernacular architecture to space exploration.
