Thesis
Full-text available
Les travaux de thèse proposés visent au développement d'un processus de conception d’enveloppes du bâtiment inspirées du vivant, appuyé par une démarche expérimentale. Pour cela, différentes étapes clés de la conception bio-inspirée sont abordées. En premier lieu, l’exploration d’un périmètre défini du vivant analogue aux enveloppes du bâtiment, no...
Thesis
Full-text available
This PhD work aims at developing a design process of building envelopes inspired by living organisms using an experimental approach. For this purpose, different key steps of the bio-inspired design process are addressed. First, the exploration of a defined perimeter of living organism, analogous to building envelopes, i.e., biological envelopes and...
Chapter
Full-text available
Living envelopes, such as biological skins and structures built by animals, are functional and sustainable designs resulting from years of evolution, conditioned by biological and physical pressures from the environment. When building a home, animals demonstrate inspiring strategies to protect themselves from predator threats and external climatic...
Article
Full-text available
Building envelopes can manage light, heat gains or losses, and ventilation and, as such, play a key role in the overall building performance. Research has been focusing on increasing their efficiency by proposing dynamic and adaptive systems, meaning that they evolve to best meet the internal and external varying conditions. Living organisms are re...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Building envelopes have a key role to the occupant comfort. Their design, implementation and functionalities highly influence the overall building performance. Some current research focus on strategies to improve buildings energy efficiency while minimizing their impact on the environment. Bioinspiration i.e., the inspiration of biological organism...
Article
Biomimetics is an opportunity for the development of energy efficient building systems. Several biomimetic building skins (Bio-BS) have been built over the past decade, however few addressed multi-regulation although the biological systems they are inspired by have multi-functional properties. Recent studies have suggested that despite numerous too...

Project
A comparative review of Eucaryotes' biological envelope (hair, feathers, shell, ...) based on their composition, structure and multi-regulation properties.
Project
This research investigates design building processes of built bioinspired building skins through key levers of improvements and brakes on their development and implementation. Thirty existing bioinspired building skins are compared them through a set of parameters focused on the design process, and more specifically on the impact of biological inputs on the final outcome.
