Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Following on from the incredible Invented by Animals, Built by Animals introduces us to the creatures who have inspired the materials and techniques that are used by humans in the building world today.



Meet over 26 animals behind the most amazing building tech, humorously brought to life by Yeji Yun and wittily and expertly explained by WWF educator Christiane Dorion. This book dives into theworld of biomimicry and answers questions like:



How can we use more solar energy to power our homes?

How can we grow plants in the desert?

How can we pump water to the top of very tall buildings?

How can we clean polluted rivers?



From the bee's honeycomb shape that strengthens structures to termites that build their nests with natural air-con, these creatures did it first! And, at the end of the book, find out who wins big at the Animal Builder Awards! Will it be the prairie dog, the peacock, the beaver or the firefly?



Built by Animals explores this amazing STEM subject in a deceptively simple way, showing children that the future of architecture can be inspired by and be respectful of nature.
