Biophilic Design: Improving Health and Well-Being in the Built Environment
Learn how to implement biophilic design solutions and create spaces where people are healthier, more satisfied, and more productive.
Biophilia is the concept that humans have an innate desire to connect with nature and natural systems. Biophilic design builds on this human-nature connection to give designers a new framework to create spaces where people are healthier, more satisfied, and more productive. It goes beyond simple ideas like putting plants in a space or using natural materials to deeper forms and characteristics that evoke nature in a space. Learn the science behind biophilic design patterns that you can apply to a wide range of projects, from residential interiors to offices to healthcare facilities. Developed in partnership with Terrapin Bright Green.
