Biology as a source of inspiration

Different life forms with their shapes, structure, and processes serve as inspiration for a design project and can be expressed in a broad spectrum. It is not only about explaining processes or organizing principles, but rather to understand and also to transfer that kind of knowledge.

Stated aim

The aim of my bachelor thesis is exploring DNA from a design perspective and transfering that knowledge. The focus of the project is not about working on biology in a scientific way. Rather the process is about investigating the topic in several ways. As design is the focus on the thesis project the next step is going to be about answering the following question. “What aspects of my investigations are useful in a different field?”


  • Research about the topic DNA
  • Describing the structures and processes of the DNA
  • Abstracting the established principles and translate them into an unattached language
  • Transfer
