Description
If you love life and the living world, you're experiencing biophilia. There's a new facet to design that is based on the biophilia hypothesis. It's called biophilic design. Incorporating this concept will enrich your designs, reconnect us with nature, and improve the well being of the natural world and the human population.

In this interactive online course you'll get the research supporting this concept, design strategies that you can use in your work, and case studies.
