Thomas J. Knittel is a design partner with McLennan Design, a global design firm. His projects in the U.S, Asia, Brazil, Middle East and Haiti explore connections between people, place and ecology. His work in biomimicry—taking inspiration from natural systems in order to solve human problems—focuses on integrating models from nature into the design of buildings, communities and cities.
Knittel holds a Masters from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, is a certified biomimicry professional, studied at SCI-Arc, and has received over 30 design awards. He donates his time as the design leader for The William Jefferson Clinton Children’s Center in Port au Prince, a new family learning center and orphanage funded by the USGBC, designed to LEED Platinum and net-zero standards, a project he began at HOK and continues through the Green Warrior Society, the sister organization of MD.
