Bionic is a design consultancy providing services in landscape architecture, planning, ecology, and exhibitions based in San Francisco, California. Founded in 2007 by Marcel Wilson, the agenda for the practice is simply to enable life. For landscapes, cities, and environments at any scale this involves stimulating culture, and the design of human and biological systems.



Bionic is invested in the belief that the world is now a designed and managed place: biological and technological, existing and invented, alive and constructed. Through this belief, Bionic strives to thoughtfully synthesize all the forces at play in a given project. The complexity of landscape, infrastructure, technology, architecture, transportation, ecology, politics, economics, and social factors is resolved through a highly creative and collaborative approach to projects. Collaborations with engineers, architects, ecologists, communities, and stakeholders are designed to meet the specific needs of each project and to culture strong close working relationships.



The creative capability of Bionic is reflected in the wide range of complex projects in Marcel Wilson’s portfolio of design and management experience. The portfolio includes art installations, new urban centers, waterfronts, stream corridors, habitat restoration, industrial facilities, mixed use development, and urban environments. Each project responds to the unique conditions of the site, context, and client needs with intelligent solutions, inventive creativity, and resourceful methods. Bionic is committed to contemporary solutions that address immediate concerns and anticipate the future.
