BIOPHILIA IN THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
Professor of architecture, Gail Brager, will be speaking at a StraightTalkseries about biophilia in the city. Biophilia means “love of life.” The series of lectures will focus on the biological need that humans have to experience a daily connection with nature, and the challenges caused by urban environments.
Research shows the many benefits in creating these connections through biophilic design. Daylight and views of nature are connected with improved learning performance for students, healing times for hospital patients, and productivity in office employees.
The lecture series will feature speakers in partnership with green building and biophilic design expert, Bill Browning of Terrapin Bright Green, LLC. and Gail Brager Ph.D., Associate Director at the Center for the Built Environment, UC Berkeley .
