Festival of the Trees 2022 DESIGN STATEMENT:

This year, we ask that designers address the theme of Visionary Biomimicry: Miami 2070. Envision Miami in 2070, 50 years into the future. As designers, we will undoubtedly need to adapt to new and challenging climate conditions affecting the way we work, play, and live. According to the Biomimicry Institute, “Biomimicry is a practice that learns from and mimics the strategies found in nature to solve human design challenges…By using nature as our mentor, we get to experience the powerful healing effects it has by connecting to the natural world — while also finding empowering relief to solve these challenges together.” At Festival of the Trees 2022, let’s learn from nature to develop designs that represent unique and innovative possibilities for our future. Because in today’s unpredictable world, we could all benefit from beacons of hope.

Tree Drop-offs will be at Kovens Convention Center on event date: Friday, November 18th from 10AM to 3PM.
