32: De Zebra Airco | Dutch
This Fable focuses on two of the “coolest” creatures found in the arid African landscapes. Both the Termite and the Zebra have developed sophisticated aircon systems which use very little energy in comparison to our cumbersome versions. Passive aircon can be replicated and built into our skyscrapers and buildings, and we can drastically reduce our energy consumption!
This Fable is inspired by Janine Benyus who has evolved the Biomimicry practice by consulting for sustainable businesses, academics, and government leaders, giving worldwide seminars about what we can learn from the genie surrounding us: natural organisms with good adaptation designs that have been proven successful over 3.8 million years.
