What is Biophilic Design?
Biophilia – which basically means a 'love of nature' – is the practice of focusing our attraction to nature and the processes it produces. It says that we all have some sort of genetic connection to nature which has existed for millions of years before we were born (in fact, sorry to break it to you but we are all products of nature ourselves!)
The term was brought into the wider public fore by psychologist Edward O. Wilson in the 1980's, during his observations of how the increasing rate of urbanisation has affected our planet and the way we live, leading to a disconnection with nature. After 30+ years of further urbanisation, these observations are more apt than ever.
With a continuing high rate of urbanisation around the world, the need to bestow a sense of nature in the areas where we live and work has never been so important. Biophilic design introduces a sense of health and wellbeing into our built-up environments, with the introduction of natural elements such as plants, lighting, air conditioning and temperature control. Thanks to modern office design methods, many businesses requiring new office interiors in Reading even choose to create a natural outdoor environment in their office building.
