Colleen Mahoney: Certified Biomimicry Specialist

Fresh out of the Biomimcry Professional Certification program, Colleen Mahoney has a whole new take on design. Rather then taking from nature, Biomimcry emulates design solutions found in nature. Biomimicry is gaining traction within scientific, engineering and design circles particularly concerned with sustainability.

Colleen first became interested in Biomimcry after reading Biomimcry: Innovation Inspired by Nature by Janine M. Benyus. Facinated, She devoured as much information as she could get her hands on.

Janine Benyus: 12 sustainable design ideas from nature

Still not satisfied, Colleen decided to go for it, and dove head long into a 10 month intensive in the Biomimcry 3.8 Cohort and immerged this November a Certified Biomimcry Specialist through the Biomimicry 3.8 Institue . Her award winning bay are design firm, Mahoney Architects & Interiors now has a new and important design tool in its tool kit. Biomimcry will certainly inform our design.
