At Bio-Logical Capital, we observe the patterns and processes of nature. There are many lessons to learn about the fit between humans and the environment. We view these lessons through the lens of economy - defined as both efficient and optimized value over time.
Leaf Vein & Agricultural Fields
Mixed-Species Herd & Pulsed Grazing
The relationship between herbivores and the grassland yields some of the most production biological systems on Earth.
Leaf Vein & Human Hand
Form and Function in natural systems are visibly evident. The further we deviate from this relationship in the systems we build, the more challenges we create for ourselves.
Ivy & Multi-Cellular Solar Array
Many individuals working in concert to achieve the goal.
Historic Town Plan & Leaf Cell Structure
As cell size and vein pattern are appropriate to the fitness of the leaf, so are street pattern, block size, and building structure important to human habitation.
Diverse Forest & Sustainable Urbanism
A healthy community is comprised of a diverse set of individual species, each fulfilling a specific role with a specific place in the system.
Solar Harvesters & Sunflowers
Nature utilizes the principle of many, redundant and efficient. Rarely do we see the “one big play” where everything may be gained or lost.
Wastewater & Constructed Wetland
A constructed natural wetland treatment system is the most efficient way to to treat wastewater. Nature’s filters provide the highest quality water with the least energy.
