What's Old is New Again — The Biophilic Workplace

Tuesday, Oct 18, 2016

What’s old is new again. As we become increasingly urban, living in zero-culture ecosystems, it has become necessary to re-discover nature in ways that were intuitive just a few generations ago. Daylight — yes please! Multi-directional views to the outside — yep! Visual diversity, texture, color, prospect, and refuge — of course! The biophilic workplace has become emblematic of this re-discovery effort by both designers and corporations — perhaps as a way to improve both occupant experience and productivity while also providing a counterpoint to how far afield we’ve wandered in the name of progress in shaping the places we work and live.

Join us for a lively discussion with practitioners on the leading edge of biophilic design. How can biophilic principles support a healthier, more resilient urban environment? What does a biophilic workplace look like? Does it really provide tangible benefits to productivity and the bottom line? What bioinspired innovative strategies and products are being developed? Come find out.
