Investigate our instinctive attraction and connection to nature, identified as Biophilia, as attendees explore the ways that our lives are dependently and beneficially intertwined with nature. Review research documenting the positive outcomes of natural environments on human health and explore the 14 patterns of Biophilic Design, and how integrating nature’s attributes into architecture enlivens biophilic engagement. We examine optical illusions, bi-sensory illusions of nature, and research on sky illusions in relation to architectural design. Lastly, explore the framework, mechanics, and outcomes for health of generating Cognitive Biophilia.
Presented by Rebecca Clemens of Sky Factory.
