BiophilicDesign -- Biophilic Design Online Discussion Forum


About BiophilicDesign
English (USA)

The Forum has been established to foster and facilitate discussion among those design professionals, planners, biologists, psychologists, health researchers, and others interested in promoting Biophilic Design. The exchange of ideas on this Forum should promote our fundamental understanding of the elements of Biophilic Design, the importance of Biophilic Design in promoting healthy, productive, and satisfying human experience within the built environment, and the mechanisms whereby Biophilic Design can be incorporated in architectural practice.

Participation is at the discretion of the Forum Director and Moderator, and is offered to those who have cogent and relevant observations to contribute. This forum is not open to the general public. To ensure the utility and effectiveness of this resource for all participants, postings which are off topic, unnecessarily verbose, not otherwise in support of the stated purpose, or of a personal or commercial nature will be strongly discouraged.
