About

Edward O. Wilson defines biophilia as “the urge to affiliate with other forms of life.” How is biophilia different from biomimicry? While biomimicry focuses on emulating nature to discover sustainable solutions to design problems, biophilia focuses on improving human health and wellbeing through the incorporation of nature and natural forms and processes into the built environment. Join us as GBRI Senior Research Associate Lilli Fischer explores this topic in-depth.
