Beauty in Design: Learning from Nature
‘Industrial design for the Port River created drains and channels and employed concrete, timber and rocks.
Design from nature creates food chains, plants suited to low tides and/or high tides, shellfish filtering water, some of which are always underwater while others can spend time in the sun.
This exhibition celebrates the beauty of nature’s design in the life of the Port River and processes of nature that inform local restoration projects.
Can missing elements in nature’s design be returned and existing structures become ecologically friendly?’
