- 21 Things You Should Know about LEED v4 »
The term “biophilia” is gaining a lot of attention since it’s been part of the WELL Building Standard following the footsteps of the Living Building Challenge. So, what is it? The innate tendency in human beings to focus on life and lifelike processes is biophilia. Can our understanding of the science of biophilic design help create healthier buildings? Is biophilic design a truly sustainable solution?
Join us as GBRI Senior Research Associate Lilli Fischer explores this topic in-depth.
In this one hour course, we will investigate the theory of Biophilia. Join us to learn how biophilia has developed over time, and what science has to say about it today. Your knowledge about this emerging field of design will expand your toolkit, incite innovative ideas, and give you a unique perspective. By the end of this course, you will understand how biophilic design impacts health and wellbeing as well as the bottom line, and how you can use biophilic design in your own work.
