‘Biophilia’, according to Biologist Edward O. Wilson..

“A love of life and the living world; the affinity of human beings for other life forms”.

What is biophilic design?

According to Oliver Heath a leading architect & biophilic designer, it is a “…human centred approach aimed at improving our connection to nature and natural processes in the buildings that we live and work. This improved connection can benefit our wellbeing by reducing stress and improving recuperation — helping to cut costs and improve outcomes in the built environment.”
