The biophilia hypothesis suggests that there is an instinctive bond between human beings and other living systems.
Biophilic design uses fresh air, daylight and water features. It creates visual and physical connections with nature. It incorporates natural materials, or those that mimic nature and natural forms. …..and then uses an understanding of human evolution to guide the design, finishes and furnishings – and bring out certain emotions in the dwellers. Inspired by the benefits biophilia brings, a a competition was launched to find designs for original, undeveloped projects that incorporate biophilia in the most innovative and exciting ways. Sadly, the deadline for submissions is just finished but you can still view the entries and vote…..
