Geomimicry: Alchemist Garden Game & Narrative Design


Mathematics, Architecture, Design, Environmental Engineering, Natural Sciences & Cultural Anthropology

Sacred Geometry, Biomimicry, and Mathematics blend nature’s geometrical patterns to develop the Alchemist Garden Game into characters and narratives.

An immersive internship journey delving into the intricate realms of Sacred Geometry and Biomimicry through the lens of mathematics. Participants will unravel the mathematical principles underlying the mesmerizing geometric patterns found in nature, such as the Fibonacci sequence and Platonic solids like Metatron’s Cube. Guided by expert mentors, interns will explore historical and contemporary applications of these geometric concepts in architecture, technology, and innovation.

In the first half of the internship, interns will engage in rigorous research and analysis, investigating the profound interplay between Sacred Geometry and Biomimicry. Through lectures, discussions, and field trips to natural environments, participants will deepen their understanding of how mathematical principles inspire innovative solutions to human challenges.

Transitioning to the second half, interns will apply their newfound knowledge to practical, hands-on projects. Collaborating with game designers and narrative mentors, interns will embark on the development of the character of the Book of Life within the animated game series Alchemist Garden. Through workshops and design sessions, you will infuse Sacred Geometry concepts into the narrative, crafting a captivating storyline that unfolds across various transmedia platforms.

By the culmination of the internship, you will emerge equipped with a comprehensive understanding of the intersection between mathematics, Sacred Geometry, and narrative design, poised to make meaningful contributions to the realms of gaming, storytelling, and innovation.

“I live in Lebanon and I am studying economics at USJ. I have always loved nature, but since Born Global introduced me to biomimicry and sacred geometry, I look at it differently. I love music, acting, writing, and research. My motto is “We all have two lives. The second one starts when we realize that we only have one".
