Copyright Nature

 

This exhibition closed in July 2011.

Nature has always been a resourceful guide for inventors and has inspired ideas that have made our lives easier. For example, the inventor of velcro got his idea from the seed of burdock which kept sticking to his clothes and his dog's fur.

Copyright Nature is an exhibition on the subject of nature, technology and science. The objective is to show us how beautiful and resourceful nature is. Many of our inventions were anticipated by nature and nature can serve as an inspiration for solving problems in modern society.

The exhibition is divided into three parts:

 

Nature Theatre

Watch a film with beautiful images from nature, emphasising nature's amazing ingenuity in the Nature Theatre.

For example, you can watch enormous octopuses display their mysterious play of colours in the deep sea, and see how well-organised ants build shelter and find food.

Discovered by Nature

Humans have learnt from and have been inspired by a wide variety of animals and plants.

Explore this open space where you will be able to examine familiar and less familiar natural inhabitants; birds, bears, octopuses, spiders, trees, monkeys, insects, bats and other fauna and flora; and find out what design solutions they inspired. This interactive part of the exhibition is made up of ten islands, each island featuring an animal or plant species.

 

 

 

The Quest

Long ago people observed animals and plants and tried to imitate what they do and use these benefits to their advantage. Now, people are continuing this tradition of looking at nature to find solutions for problems that our society currently has to contend with.

The Quest examines things which are important to us all: food, drinking water, shelter, mobility and health. How does nature solve these issues? Revolutionary ideas in which science is currently involved are explained, and examples of applications in modern science are shown.
