One of the lead architects on the Eden Project, and director of Exploration, Michael Pawlyn is a passionate advocate of, and keynote speaker on biomimicry and innovation.

Michael established Exploration in 2007 to focus exclusively on environmentally sustainable projects that take their inspiration from nature. In 2008 Exploration was short-listed for the Young Architect of the Year Award and the internationally renowned Buckminster Fuller Challenge.

Prior to setting up his company, for over a decade, Michael was central to the team that radically re-invented horticultural architecture for the Eden Project.

He was the project leader for the design of the Warm Temperate and Humid Tropics Biomes and established proposals for a third Biome for plants from dry tropical regions.

He has lectured widely on the subject of sustainable design in the UK and abroad and in May 2005 delivered a talk at the Royal Society of Arts with Ray Anderson, CEO of Interface. In 2007 Michael delivered a talk at Google’s annual ‘Zeitgeist’ conference and, in 2011, became one of only a small handful of architects to have a talk posted on TED.com. His TED talk has received millions of viewings and remains incredibly popular.

His book which covers Biomimicry in great depth was published to great success in 2011 also.

The Sahara Forest Project, which he jointly initiated, has received plaudits from numerous world leaders for its visionary approach to addressing future food, energy and water challenges. The first version was built in Qatar and was opened by the Emir during the 2012 COP 18 climate change negotiations.

Michael’s work has been featured in Wired, The Economist, New Scientist, National Geographic and many other international newspapers and magazines. He has also featured on Radio 4 and the Discovery Channel.

Able to confidently explain energy and climate change solutions to all kinds of audiences, discuss biomimicry and sustainability in a keynote speech and share stories from his time on the Eden Project, Michael is a brilliant sustainability and green speaker.
