Cooper Hewitt: Wyss Institute Selects


The beauty of natural forms and their underlying design principles provide living organisms with their incredible strength, resilience, and efficiency. Join us for a lively conversation with Matilda McQuaid, Deputy Director of Curatorial and Head of Textiles, and Don Ingber, founding director of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, and his co-faculty member Pamela Silver.

The panel will explore how nature’s design principles guide the Wyss Institute’s disruptive technology solutions for healthcare, energy, architecture, robotics, and manufacturing. Learn how the Wyss Institute curated Wyss Institute SelectsWorks from the Permanent Collection, now on view.
