On January 27, 2011, the Cleveland Institute of Art will host a lecture on biomimicry in design presented by Entrepreneurs for Sustainability (E4S).
Dr. Frank Fish, an expert on design practices which look to nature for inspiration, will present the talk "Biomimicry in Design: Turbines Inspired by Whales" at the Cleveland Institute of Art on Thursday, Jan. 27.
As president and founder of WhalePower Corp. and professor of biology at West Chester University, Dr. Fish will share his story of developing wind turbine blades that mimic the bumpy leading edge of a whale’s flipper. This follows the principles of biomimicry, a design discipline that takes inspiration from nature’s best ideas to solve human problems.
The Cleveland Institute of Art, one of America’s top design schools, hosts this lecture and social networking event presented by Entrepreneurs for Sustainability (E4S), a Cleveland-based nonprofit organization that advances the idea that sustainability principles are drivers for new business opportunities and improved quality of life. The event is also sponsored by the University of Akron and BiomimicryNEO.
The talk will take place in CIA's Aitken Auditorium, 11141 East Boulevard, from 4 to 6pm on January 27, 2011. Admission is free and open to the public. Attendees should RSVP at e4s.org.
