Will Biomimicry Offer a Way Forward, Post-Sandy?

By looking at the ways plants and animals adapt to their environment, architects are using “the emerging science of biomimicry” to make buildings more resilient. For instance, an orphanage in Haiti was built to store water much like the native Kapok tree. A honeycomb structure inspired an office tower in South Korea. This might be one strategy to prevent more weather damage in the future.
