Biophilic Green Infrastructure Design Virtual Symposium

Successful Biophilic Implementation and the Post Covid Recovery

Biophilic design is more than just indoor greenery and proximity to plants. There are 14 different patterns of biophilic design that include everything from light and sound to how items are arranged in a space. The built environment has the potential to be a truly invigorating and full sensory experience that enhances our health and connects us to the natural world. Currently, low-lit or harshly lit offices with limited natural light can lead to fatigue, headaches and mental health challenges. Our buildings should not make us sick or deprive us of innate needs.

On March 25, 2021, explore successful and creative applications of biophilic design and learn how to convey the benefits to clients. Biophilic design will become increasingly important and popular as people return to life post COVID19 and as more top companies start to incorporate it into their offices and stores (Ex. Salesforce Tower). Millennials and Gen Zā€™s are far more likely to choose an employer, restaurant, store etc. based on the sustainability goals and aesthetic than previous generations. Biophilic design is the future of the built environment, are your skills ready?
