Curator: Bridget Nicholls | Partner: ARUP
We challenged the brilliant minds at Arup to design engineered structures based on ant bridge building technologies. These genius engineering designers created fantastic feats of biomimicry that we are still boggling over today.
Take a look at some of their creations for inspiration. What element of the insect world would inspire your builds? Tower building ants? Termite air conditioning systems? Show us what you’ve got on social media #PestivalArupInsectEngineers
Calling all creators, sponsors, possible partners and collaborators, teachers, learners and mavericks
