Biophilic/Nature Imitation

The Value of Natural Things

The cognitive science research is clear – using natural elements (for example, materials, sounds, light, plants, fresh air, and water) in interior spaces has positive consequences for how people think and behave.  What scientists have learned about nature-based experiences can inform design that enhances wellbeing and cognitive performance and  encourages worthwhile life experiences. 

Research-Informed Biophilic Design

Neuroscience makes it clear that biophilic design supports positive life experiences.  It has been shown to boost cognitive, emotional, and social outcomes at work, at home, and elsewhere.  This review outlines how to comprehensively apply the principles of biophilic design to align the forms of objects and spaces with fundamental human life goals/motivations.
