The Biology to Design Spiral (B2D) is a tool used in Biomimetic Design to discover, abstract, brainstorm, emulate, and evaluate an organism and turn it into a design.
You can find it in the Biomimicry Toolbox of the Biomimicry Institute.
More on the power of spiral design here.

The Design Spirals were produced in collaboration between the Biomimicry Institute and Biomimicry 3.8 (formerly the Biomimicry Guild)


Below are three explorations of organisms right now through the B2D Spiral three times. Please note that this document is only accessible to members of the MCAD network for now.
