Introduction to Biophilic Design Webinar
Learn how incorporating nature into our buildings and landscapes can result in a 15% increase in well-being, creativity and productivity.  Discover why people sleep better and are 56% more relaxed in biophilic residences; students in biophilic schools have higher test scores; and hospitals could save $93 million due to more rapid patient healing.  Rebecca will describe the key features of biophilic design including natural materials and patterns, complex but ordered landscapes, kinetic sculptures, atriums, water features, natural pools, swim spas, green walls.  Finally she will discuss strategies for working with green builders and architects to incorporate these into designs.
