Abstract


Lawson is a naturalist, a trainer and famed as a TED-X Speaker on Biomimicry – showing how nature can inspire good design. From geckos (and people) climbing walls and shark skin swim suits to natural pollution control and low noise wind turbines. Taking inspiration from nature’s design nous allows engineers to be better at what they do.
