Much of the built environments market is driven by theories of design, and designing from nature is an ever-present theme. Beyond human-centeredness per se, many product designers and the space designers they are appealing to look to the natural world through for inspiration. As more of our daily lives are influenced by built environments, designers look to biomimicry and biophilia for starting places.

Moreover, sustainable design has moved from cutting edge to standard practice. Designing from and for nature will only increase as a theme and in substance.
