Biomimicry Design Spiral
The Biomimicry Design Spiral is a helpful tool for learning the steps that are critical to successful biomimetic design. Use it when you are interested in solving a specific problem (a “challenge”) or see a design opportunity and want to look to biological models for inspiration.

Fit and Functionality
NOTE: It’s important to remember that the Design Spiral is a simplified version of what is in reality a non-linear and iterative process. Although the steps are listed sequentially, you should expect to revist earlier steps and revise your work along the way as new discoveries lead you to rethink previous conclusions. (That’s the reason it’s a spiral, not a straight line!)
