Virtual Nooniversity: Biophilia: the Nature of Design

12:00 PM
Zoom Virtual Meeting | Online Kansas City, MO 64108 Map

This will be a VIRTUAL program held on Zoom.  Log in information will be emailed to attendees two days before the program.

Join Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects for this program on biophilic design.

The term biophilia, a theory first described by biologist E.O. Wilson in his 1984 book of the same title, suggests the innate desire humans have to connect with nature and other forms of life. Supported by an established field of research, biophilic or nature-focused design has become an emerging force in the built environment serving to reconnect people to the elements from which we came. Today, professionals engaged in every design discipline have embraced the concept to create highly successful projects that promote wellness and enhance livability. This program will explore how biophilic design is shaping the design profession and provide successful examples of how we can effectively integrate this practice in our work.

This program is worth 1 HSW .  You must attend the full session in order to get AIA credit.  If you leave the Zoom meeting early, no credit will be reported.
