Even though human-made designs may be complex and advanced they are not at all as complex as the designs around us created by nature. Inspiration from nature can lead us towards new and unconventional methods or design ideas (Bentley, 1999). Nature has created a vast diversity of creatures and plants with sophisticated behaviour. Properties such as complexity, adaption to the environment, selfreproduction, self-repair and collective behaviour are obvious in nature but very hard to put into human-made designs.
