Fortune Magazine ran a story on the HOK/Biomimicry Guild alliance at http://money.cnn.com/2008/10/03/magazines/fortune/gunther_biomimicry.fortune/. It emphasizes the large contribution of building construction and operation to carbon emissions.

In addition to a list of biomimicry applications, the article describes some current HOK initiatives such as designing new towns in a rural valley near Mumbai that can adapt to the cycles of monsoons and drought as well as hurricane-resistant communities in coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico.

Thanks to Barbara Ciesla for the pointer!
