Why Biophilic Design Matters

 

In his 1984 ‘Biophilia Hypothesis', eminent US biologist Edward O Wilson proposed that humans share a deep seated desire to be with nature, and that exposure to the natural world is therefore important for human health and well-being. Nowhere better for clear evidence of this is in Japan, where Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing Therapy), has been a cornerstone of their medicine since the 1980s. 

Evidence based research further indicates that it is becoming increasingly clear that biophilia has a real and measurable impact on improving human performance metrics such as productivity, physiological as well as psychological health and well-being, stress reduction, creativity and learning.

Also, with the finite limitations of many of our natural resources creeping even closer every year; as well as biophilia, we also promote Cradle to Cradle (C2C) principles. In which we align biophilic design strategies with the Circular Economy, for helping prolong the life cycle of a building.
