We can be quite disconnected from nature, with most of the time spent in controlled interiors, such as the offices, shopping centres, and the homes, so the only real opportunity to engage withnature is on a weekend hike through a forest. But what if you can experience the same emotions and benefits of being in a forest at home? Biophilicdesign is a concept to increase the connection to the natural environment.
The term 'biophilia' was coined by Edward O. Wilson, and defined as "the urge to affiliate with other forms of life." When translated to architecture, it means the buildings should be celebrating the environment around them. While there are over 20 elements associated withbiophilicdesign, in this video We focus on a few key principles to engage withnature in yourhome.
