Biophilic design is a design philosophy, and has the potential to intentionally reconnect people and nature through buildings. It goes beyond adding plants or a water feature and focuses on connecting to the particular ecology of a place, to its culture and climate to create buildings that are full of life.” Amanda Sturgeon, author of Creating Biophilic Buildings, CEO, International Living Future Institute

Join leaders in the field for this hands on summit where we will explore the possibilities for creating healthy habitat for humans. The organizing theme of the summit will guide attendees to think of the built environment as a habitat. Encouraging participants to consider how to meet our biological needs and respect for our evolutionary history through architecture and design.

We will push the boundaries of how we can create more immersive environments through sound and light, as well as explore how our buildings can strive to connect us to the particular ecology of place, to it’s culture and climate to create a living future.
