Investing in our Future – Interview with Matthew Webb, AIRAH 2014 Student of the Year

Biomimicry, from Greek “bios” (meaning life) and “mimesis” (to imitate) is innovation inspired by nature. It offers designers – in all fields of human endeavour – innovation opportunities to develop new products, processes and systems in a more sustainable way.

Matt is a sustainability consultant at Umow Lai who specialises in the detailed analysis of HVAC systems and passive designs. Matt is an experienced engineering modeller who is now also focussing on building controls and tuning. He has combined his consultancy work with studies at the University of Melbourne in order to obtain a PhD in Engineering, specialising in biomimicry and the application of biomimicry to facade design.
