Bioinspired Adaptive Materials: From Molecules to Buildings

Our 5th annual international symposium welcomed an international audience including more than 450 professionals from academia and industry, representing diverse disciplines such as architecture, medicine and materials.

The event focused on the development of innovative materials inspired by Nature that respond to the environment by adapting their shape and function to continuously optimize energy efficiency, thermal gain, and other properties critical for sustainability or other high value applications. It was organized by Wyss Institute Core Faculty members Joanna Aizenberg, Jennifer Lewis and Don Ingber, the day included a number of distinguished speakers and a keynote presentation by Peter Vikusic from the University of Exeter.
