Our affinity toward nature is genetic and deep-rooted in evolution. A growing number of studies are putting forward evidence that a connection with nature makes us healthier and happier. From our evolutionary past we need nature, but we have designed our cities, homes and workplaces in ways that alienate us from nature. Many of the products we use are filled with chemical ingredients. The good news is that attitudes about the importance of our connection with nature are changing.
Biophilia means ‘love of life' or 'living systems’. It's an innovative way of designing the places where we live, work, and learn with natural resources. Good for your health and happiness, because nature brings all senses alive. Interior designers, engineers and architects use this fundamental connection with forms and patterns that reflect the natural world. So we can enjoy the positive effects of connecting to nature.
"Improving health & well-being: study nature, love nature, stay close to nature."
