Biophilic Hub

12 Feb , 2018  

Biophilia is the idea that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life; it stems from the Greek meaning “love of life.” Biophilic design applies these principles to the built environment, incorporating nature in a deep and fundamental way. Powered by Interface, the Biophilic Hub will be delving deeper into these principles and the issues that go hand in hand with them.
