What is Biodesign?
Biodesign, more than being an intersection of science, biology, arts and design is a way of thinking, a way of perceiving our relationship and interactions with the environment and other organisms we shared it with. It is the next step of the design thinking process, in which we not only design specifically for us, but we design as an ecosystem, as part of a bigger system of inorganic and organic matter that is not determine only by humanity.
