_FEATURED RESEARCH / INNOVATIONS
Many coastal projects rely on breakwaters or seawalls made from concrete, yet the smooth surfaces of concrete do not offer habitat benefits to marine life. After seeing the damage these structures cause to marine life, Israeli marine biologists Dr. Shimrit Perkol-Finkel and Dr. Ido Sella utilized their academic research and founded ECOncrete® Tech LTD. Using biomimicry, they developed a range of marine concrete solutions that mimic marine habitats. The result is visually beautiful concrete, covered in marine life!
In 2020 the Biomimicry Institute awarded ECOncrete® Tech LTD with its Ray of Hope Prize, worth $100,000

The power of virtual reality: selling the ecological and psychological benefits of your biodiversity goals
How many of us have had ecologically beneficial plants cut from our planting schemes and substituted with plants with no flowers, no seasonal change, no litter – ‘green cement’?
When there is a desperate need to provide habitat for birds and bees in our cities and suburbs, often a designers best sales pitch can still not overcome a client’s concerns of maintenance and aesthetics.
Ecologist Ash Welch, from AECOM, discusses the possibilities of using virtual reality (VR) as a tool to add depth to these discussions. Imagine being able to put on a headset and see your future project looking fantastic with a diverse mix of plants and flowers buzzing with life. And imagine further if you were able to see, in the same VR view, the statistics related to the ecological and psychological benefits of each aspect of your project as you looked around. The possibilities seem endless! Read the full article from Ash Welch here
Architects have begun incorporating this technology into their projects, yet are there many other landscape architecture examples? The potential for this technology in our field is exciting! We’d love to showcase projects on the site where this technology was incorporated – See more here
