Through our prestigious Fellowship Program, BFI welcomes outstanding early-career practitioners to join the Fuller Challenge Review Committee for four months of the rigorous application review process.
Biomimicry 3.8 is offering a five-day immersive tour through giant redwoods, oak woodlands and intertidal zones of California. Explore the interlinked ecosystems and learn how to bring nature’s design to your own work.
Human activities and designs are radically re-shaping ecological cycles. So it's no surprise that, water - not just carbon - is increasingly the focus of many large-scale restoration, regeneration, and landscape management efforts.
Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) is a deep well of wisdom that can teach us how to cultivate and regenerate the conditions for life on Earth. M. Kat Anderson's book Tending the Wild demonstrates these collaborative approaches and a new television show inspired by Anderson's book was just released and is viewable online.
BFI will offer an informational webinar about the Fuller Challenge on Wednesday, February 8th at 2pm ET. BFI staff will provide a conceptual and technical guide to entering the 2017 Fuller Challenge. The webinar is free and open to the public.
Several Native American designers spoke at the the AIGA Design Conference recently about the need for a comprehensive approach to design education. They called for an increase in diversity of perspectives and recognition of the US’s rich indigenous design history.
