The BCO NextGen South West is inviting built environment professionals to join Oliver Heath in an inspiring and informative talk about Biophilic Design and how it can help create more restorative, recuperative and energising office environments. Following the talk there will be an opportunity to network over light refreshments.
What is Biophilic Design and why is it important?
Biophilia is the love of nature and focuses on humanities innate attraction to nature and natural processes. In the 1980’s American psychologist Edward O Wilson observed how increasing urbanisation was leading to the disconnection with the natural world. Biophilic Design incorporates nature indirectly and directly in the design of the spaces we live and work. Through research this has demonstrated reduction in stress, blood pressure levels and heart rates, whilst increasing productivity, creativity and self-reported well-being.
From the simple to the complex, hear from Oliver Heath on the opportunities to include Biophilic Design in the office environment.
