The students from BioTectonica seek from nature different morphologies which provide optimum strategies of adaptation to some of these natural events implications. Structural elasticity was key in order to design architectures resilient to wind gusts and seismic motion. Structural opacity (branching, networking) provides important design lessons to decrease sea surges impacts. Some of the biomimicry-based projects were selected and exhibited at Huracanes y Casa Segura, an annual event that fosters education on resilience and Climate Change effects on the Caribbean.
