2020 AILA Land-E-Scape: Reset - Towards healing. https://landscapeaustralia.com/calendar/conference/2020-aila-land-e-scape-reset-towards-healing/
Biophilia, suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life, and thus as humans we seek “the urge to affiliate with other forms of life”. To be able to reflect how biophilia can be expressed in the design of educational environments, we need to understand what it is about nature that creates a sense of well-being and the subconscious engagement of place. We know from a significant body of research that sensory connection to nature initiates in us reactions that enhance well-being and healing. Biophilic design needs to include these deep patterns of connection.
