How can biology inform architects?

Julian Vincent

Julian Vincent is a biologist who spent the last eight years of his university career as a professor of mechanical engineering. His 300+ publications cover biomechanics of animals and plants (mostly materials), texture of food, smart materials, techniques of TRIZ, and more. In his retirement he is collecting consultancies and professorships and continues lecturing and writing and doing a few experiments. His ambition is to make biomimetics the new engineering and to play his banjo in Carnegie Hall. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
