The benefits of biophilic building design

With UK society facing a mental health crisis it is now more important than ever to use every available tool to support peoples well-being. Incorporating nature-inspired (biophilic) design elements into buildings is one way to help. We will explain the principles of biophilic design and show that they can easily be incorporated into new buildings and added to existing spaces. We will look at the impact of biophilia on educational outcomes and general well-being using independent research and case studies.
