BDC interviewed some of our supporters to learn why they're excited about biodesign. The range of their perspectives and reasons for engagement both surprised and inspired us.
"The demand for stylish, sustainable fashion has always existed—new technology is just allowing designers to do a better job of meeting it."
"Biology is our most sustainable technology... We see the elegance, efficiency and diversity of biodesign and the potential of introducing these qualities into the engineered world."
"There is a heavy design component to good science. When you are building an apparatus or a new experiment, you are always trying to trade flexibility with usability. "
