Horizon Scan

This section features a range of existing biomimetic projects or case studies that utilize natural organisms to solve the primary function of thermoregulation, e.g., heat dissipation. In addition, organisms may also tackle secondary functions such as water harvesting and carbon capture that have a broader role of building skin application – beyond thermoregulation. 

The projects are collated from around the world but are relevant to the tropics and its hot, and humid climate. Each project lists its location where known, natural inspiration, creator,  stage of development (conceptual, prototyped, built) and the functions it tackles.
