and I looked through some examples from Cynthia and Brittany biomimicry
research and chose two for our research into creating Revit-based tools
that utilize the genius of nature. The first is an example that uses moth wings for acoustic analysis it is based on the cabbage
tree emperor moth which has wings with tiny scales that absorb sound waves that
