TreeHugger has a post on an iPhone app looking at biomimicry based designs - An iPhone App about Biomimetic Architecture: BioDesign #3 by Dennis Dollens.
This seems to be the year for green iPhone apps, with already over 100 to choose from, including TreeHugger's own which was launched last month and the Green Map app launched recently. Now here is one for the biomimicry and architecture fans amongst you. Dennis Dollens, the architect who grows buildings, has just made his work available via the iPhone.
Dollens' latest comic carries on where his last one left off. It is about developing ideas to combine technology with biology in an architectural context. He is constantly studying plants and looking for biomimetic ideas to apply to buildings and designs, in order to create bio-architecture; clean, eco-friendly buildings that could filter pollution, harvest energy and much more.
In order to communicate these ideas and inspire others to come up with more, Dollens writes comic books. Most of them are available as downloadable PDFs via his site on Issuu, but now you can read BioDesign #3 as an iPhone application in a beautifully re-designed, much easier to handle, format.
