With its new permanent space and its bio-lab, the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie explores the sources of education in the living world. Presented in the greenhouse, the exhibition Bio-inspirée, une autre approche bears witness to organisms that have developed know-how to protect themselves, adapt to their environment and resist change.
By exploring the living world through a sensory path, visitors discover the biomimicry approach, which aims to draw inspiration from the living world to imagine a more sustainable and harmonious world.
As soon as they enter, visitors move along a path of plants and sounds are triggered as they pass. All the senses are on alert. Once in the greenhouse (built by architect Dominique Perrault in 1997), the visitor discovers three eco-systems:
Biomimetics allow us to imagine sustainable development models and bio-inspired solutions that the public discovers thanks to the fun and interactive devices at their disposal (games, quizzes, models, films, etc.).
At the heart of the exhibition, the BioLab is an open space for discussion and experimentation on the environment and microscopic organisms.
Visitors are invited to question themselves, to observe... They are actors and contribute to participatory science projects to raise awareness of the challenges of the ecological transition.
Exhibition in French, English and Spanish.
