Pushing the Boundaries of Biophilic Design

Oregon Convention Center: Room 201
Track: Master Speaker

This interactive session will explore the leading edge of Biophilic Design practice, drawing on current projects as well as speculative design competitions that connect effectively to health, resilience, and climate change. What can we do today to prepare for tomorrow and support a resilient future? A panel of experts who contribute to ILFI’s Biophilic Design Initiative will provide context and provoke conversation. Audience members will be provided with a list of projects and materials referenced in the conversation to support further thought.
