Biophilia, Evidence-Based Design and Integrating Nature for Longevity (30 mins)
What does Florence Nightingale have to do with design? Why do workers who have no view of nature/outdoors take more sick leave? In this session, you’ll learn about the three pillars of biophilic design, the social and economic effect of biophilia, why hospitals are designed as they are, the introduction of evidence-based design (EBD) and how it’s our responsibility to design our future.
After this we’ll take a look at the technical side of integrating nature into our interior designs and the four principles that allow you to design for long-term success.
