Architecture is currently seeking to create new and innovative building forms that are more sustainable and less harmful to the environment. In this pursuit, architects are turning to nature for inspiration, utilizing biomimicry and biophilic design principles to create buildings that are more in harmony with the natural world.

The use of biomimicry and biophilic design has produced encouraging results, as architects are incorporating natural forms and elements into their building projects. This approach has the potential to bring significant advancements in innovation and research, particularly in fields such as green nanotechnology and sustainability.

Moreover, the intentional incorporation of nature in building design can have a positive impact on workers' health, leading to reduced stress levels and greater individual satisfaction with their work or living environment. Thus, biomimicry and biophilic design can play a key role in achieving a more sustainable and healthier built environment.
