For decades, scientists, researchers, architects, and designers have been collaboratively exploring how to utilize the aspects of nature that most impact our relationship with the built environment. Many theorists organize biophilic design principles under three categories: nature in the space, nature of the space, and natural analogues, all of which determine a physical, visual, and emotional connection to the natural world. This framework, however, goes beyond materials, light, and ventilation, all of which are significant contributors to biophilic spaces. Effective biophilic design lets earth be the architecture itself, or at least a big part of it. And what seems to be often overlooked is that it is also locally-appropriate design, meaning that the architecture should not just blend with nature, it should blend with its nature – the specific surroundings of the project itself.
Take a look at how architects prioritized human wellbeing, and reinforced biophilia and the relationship between nature, human biology, and the built environment through 21 projects from our database.
