Join TerraMai PDX and a panel of designers and architects to discuss the latest trends in biophilic design across a variety of interiors in the Pacific Northwest. From retail to hospitality to office—designers are being challenged more than ever to incorporate nature and select materials with an eye toward improving human well-being.
