Please add to our community thinking by posting a few inspirational analogies of your own between the systems that you typically find in biological organisms and similar systems that we often (or should) find in buildings.

Think creatively about all the systems and features that allow creatures to survive, thrive, and adapt to their environments!

  • Doors, windows, and vents are sort of like the pores of your skin
    • Maybe doors are more like your mouth?
  • Electrical systems (and Wifi, not sure if that counts as part of the building) are like mycorrhizal networks or root systems sharing information between plants
  • The main entrance or façade of a building is like a face - unique and memorable (in a good design)!
