One of the lead architects on the Eden Project, Michael Pawlyn will be at the Aberystwyth Science Café on 27 May to discuss biomimicry — a discipline that looks at nature's best ideas to inspire solutions to human problems.

Michael Pawlyn was short-listed for the Young Architect of the Year Award and the internationally renowned Buckminster Fuller Challenge. He has lectured widely on the subject of sustainable design in the UK and abroad.

His book 'Biomimicry in Architecture' was published by the Royal Institute of British Architects. He is currently working on a range of biomimicry-based architectural projects and a book commissioned by TED. http://www.ted.com/pages/about
