Biophilic design is a concept that aims to increase connectivity to the natural environment. Used at both the building and city-scale, biophilic design can reduce stress, enhance creativity and clarity of thought, improve our well-being and expedite healing. As cities worldwide continue to grow, these qualities have become increasingly more important, and theorists, research scientists, and design practitioners are working to define the aspects of nature that most impact our satisfaction with the built environment.

Join us for an image-heavy and intellectually stimulating look at 15 different dimensions of biophilic designs.  So much more than plants, nature's inspiration provides nearly endless examples, applicable to any project, including thermal and airflow variability, material choices, biomorphic forms and patterns, and dynamic and diffused lighting.
