‘Foodprints’ explores how the discipline of biomimicry can promote urban food resilience and opportunities for biodiversity to flourish in urban developments. There is an inherent relationship between the city and how food arrives on our plates. We want to investigate how to create ‘resilient’ cities that mimic nature’s ecosystems, where all the elements are interactive, abundant in feed-back loops, responsive, engaging, conducive to life, and always looking to reach the best use of resources.
This project has a vision and a task to rethink how we live and feed ourselves. It aims to infuse our enthusiasm to design cities with small ‘foodprints’ using nature as inspiration. We call it ‘foodprints’, a play with terminology around ecological+footprinting, a mix of urban design, science and cooking for a new typology of de- sign pallete.
