Abstract

Biophilic design can enhance the work environment in many ways by reducing stress, providing a sense of place and creating an environment that supports human health and well-being. Explore a variety of design strategies that you can implement to support your tenants in this informative session.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify three researchers or authors that contributed to the evolution of biophilic design for human health in the built environment.
  2. Provide an example of one pattern found in nature and how it can be translated into an interior design element to support occupant comfort.
  3. Describe the difference between a visual and non-visual design connection with nature. List three health benefits that the principles of biophilic design provide in the workplace.
