Natural Beauty: Design with Biophilic Principles to Promote Occupant Well-Being

Sponsor: Mecho

Description: One of the most important concepts behind biophilia is the “urge to affiliate with other forms of life,” (E.O. Wilson). Humans are connected to nature, inspired in nature, and desire to be harmonized with nature. This course discusses the main principles of biophilic design and explains how a connection with nature benefits human well-being, increases classroom performance, and reduces stress. Multiple case studies demonstrating the positive benefits of daylight and views on building occupants are discussed and applications of biophilic design are examined.
