Event description

Description

The concepts of biophilia ("love of life") and biophilic design are growing as they are now part of several major building certification programs intending to promote human health and wellbeing, as well as planetary healing by holistically integrating nature and natural systems and processes back into the built environment.

In this biophilic design process workshop, a series of design vignettes will be offered to allow attendees to experience the biophilic design process step by step based on biophilic principles and the ecomimetic system integration at various scales.

Learning objectives:

  1. Incorporate biophilia and biophilic principles, experiences and attributes into their design practice creating environments where people and planet can flourish and thrive.
  2. Utilize an ecomimetic/ecosystem approach to the design process including scales of design and the integration of complex-system thinking.
  3. Explain the theory, science and research supporting biophilic design's role in promoting human health and wellbeing.
  4. Integrate biophilic design holistically and ecologically into design solutions to promote environmental healing.

This event is part of an ongoing monthly workshop series hosted by the nonprofit Green Built Alliance through the second half of 2019 that aims at educating and engaging building professionals in regenerative design.
