The Relationship Between Space, Human, and Nature: Wellness and Biophilia13 August 2021
Section Two: Biophilic Design and the Integration of Natural Elements
Humans are part nature; they can’t operate separate from it. Anectodal evidence demonstrates that we are interested in nature and the longing we feel towards nature is gradually increasing. In the light of this information, the design world came up with a solution to move human and nature closer to one another. Biophilic design successfully integrates natural elements into our living spaces.
Biophilia, Love of Life or Living Things
First introduced by Edward Osborne Wilson, “biophilia” means a love of life or living things. This concept suggests that humans are instinctually depended upon living systems. It continues to gain fast-paced popularity as the urban development and rural depopulation show an upward trend.
