Mankind has often drawn inspiration from nature to solve problems since nature has complex mechanisms that have been perfected over thousands of years. Natural processes, on the other hand, embody sustainability values, but there are many lessons to learn from nature to solve design challenges and build a more sustainable future. A biomimetic design methodology retains this promise. Bio-design is another design approach that includes incorporating natural elements into the design. The building façade is a challenging research area because it sits at the intersection of living spaces and the natural environment, posing numerous challenges, especially in terms of energy-air-water transitions between indoors and outdoors. Natural processes may be used to strengthen the implementation of key energy-efficient principles in architecture, such as energy requirements, shape and function, and development considerations. Through the perspectives of biomimetics and bio-design, this study examines cutting-edge design concepts, materials, and designs in building façades. The design principles are explained first, followed by the materials and a few examples. Biomimicry and bio-design are in line with the philosophy of energy efficiency; but, to achieve energy-efficient façade solutions, biomimetic concepts must be at the centre of the design.
