CONCEPT | Nature has evolved through millions of years under selection pressure. Extracting knowledge and understanding some of the properties found in natural elements can provide opportunities to innovate, and lead to new material applications. Natural resins, which are characterized as any natural organic compound consisting of a noncrystalline or viscous liquid substance, may possess underlying properties suitable for the architectural industry.
