Embracing Biophilic Design
Biophilic Design provides us the foundation to help positively affect both human and ecological well-being within the built environment by sensitively responding to unique ecology of place, culture, history and beauty; creating places of joy, inspiration and interconnection. Biophilic Design goals and strategies have evolved out of research areas such as environment and behavior studies, biology, and physical and psychological health. Empirical evidence shows that Biophilic Design causes psychological and physiological effects that support healing, learning, cognitive skills, and creativity. Furthermore, people enjoy spaces that connect them to nature as a result of these inherent biological connections.
