Many thanks to the über-inspired and super science and arts savvy Lula Criado, founder and editor of CLOT magazine, for inviting Bionic City to its arts meets science Universe...
"Nature is wise and has created perfect biological methods and solutions, so why not follow their rules? Melissa Sterry, design scientist and unconventional thinker with a cutting-edge focus on Biomimicry, Living Architecture and Resilience Theory, is a futurist of our planet. Founder and director of Bionic City, Melissa Sterry is blurring the boundaries between environment, technology and engineering.
Based on Biomimetics, Biotechnology and Biology principles, Melissa tells us that Bionic City “embraces the European tradition of the imaginary city as a vehicle for philosophical exploration of possible architectural and urban futures”.
