Sketchnotes of Biomimicry Oregon’s Genius of Place Workshop on Stormwater Systems

Yesterday I completed my first ‘official’ graphic recording gig, and it was a success!  The Portland-based group Biomimicry Oregon put on a Genius of Place workshop that focused on the state of urban stormwater systems and how we can use nature as a model to improve the form and function of those systems.  The 50 workshop attendees came from a broad range of public and private sector positions to learn the key priniciples of biomimicry and brainstorm ways of implementing those ideas in the context of Portland’s stormwater system.  I attended with my sketchbook in hand and captured as many ideas as I could:

I had a blast at the workshop.  The ideas came fast, and I definitely didn’t catch all of them, but I enjoyed getting down what I could.  The cool topic and interesting group of people made it fun as well.  Thanks to Biomimicry Oregon for having me attend!
