RESCHEDULED:Virtual Nooniversity: Biophilic Design + Sustainable Forestry: Wood Buildings Contribute to Occupant & Forest Health

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 Jason Bahr with Woodworks for this program on biophilic design.  North American forests are abundant and the place many of us turn to connect with nature, lessen our stress and gain a sense of health and wellbeing. Timber is another significant part of their value—a natural renewable material that, when exposed on the interior of buildings, has the potential to extend its biophilic attributes to the wellbeing of occupants. With an emphasis on case study examples, this presentation will illustrate how utilizing wood in projects aligns with Terrapin Bright Green’s 14 Patterns of Biophilic Design. It will also consider the use of wood construction in the context of North American forests, including sustainable forest management and overall forest health.  

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.
