Implementing Biophilic Design at Living Future unConference
Join SERA this May for Living Future’s unConference, where we’ll be presenting “Biophilia – from Theory to Culture to Action.”
In an ongoing, grassroots effort at SERA, our staff is exploring biophilic design – simply put, how environments with natural characteristics impact health and wellbeing – and how it can enrich projects, support cultural values, and lead to positive outcomes for occupants.
As biophilic design theory attempts to make a broad impact in the practical world, a relatable and adaptable language is needed to facilitate design and communicate its value. In this session, our designers share SERA’s bottom-up and top-down process for normalizing biophilic design and its values in any organization ready to assimilate this familiar yet growing base of knowledge. This interactive event includes a history of our process, lessons learned, breakout discussion and of course, advice for moving forward.
Guests will find it beneficial to have a basic understanding of Biophilia, its patterns, and the available resources.
