Contact Name: Jean Mee Organization:The Cooper Union

Understanding how nature is engineered can help to determine how a shape occurs and how a structure develops. It can also stimulate the imagination of would-be-designers and teach them observation, adaptation, ingenuity, simplicity, and other qualities that make for a good designer. “The Engineering of Nature, Constructals” is a project based class implemented at the Cooper Union where students strive to develop innovative and efficient construction methods simulating natural processes. This website provides access to a description of the course, the course bibliography and student projects.
