What does it take to give a building soul? In this webinar, Dr Phillip Roös will explore the concept of our human desire to be part of nature, also known as biophilia, and how this can inform architecture in wonderful ways. He will focus on how these natural design elements have historically been integrated in architecture, some current best practice examples, and the positive effects they can have on our well-being.
