URBAN FLOODSCAPES
Moving from hydrophobia to hygroscopia
Through the joy of design we secure a restorative fit
between cities and their supporting ecosystems.
Our mission
We embrace the concept of biomimicry
in our design process by examining and
replicating the models, systems,
processes, and elements of nature.

STUDIO
To tackle these global challenges we established the Biocity
Studio.
!
This research vehicle allows us to partner with universities,
scientists, industry, NGO’s and government to undertake
urban sustainability research.
!
We make the findings of this research open source and use it to
inform our design work.
Biocity uses sensed real time and collected
data to visualise urban systems for citizens,
business intelligence and urban planning uses.
