Biophilic Design: Achieving Broad Adoption
TRACK: Biomimicry + Biophilic Design

This session will bring together national experts who are working together to create a Biophilic Design Network that has the goal of achieving broad adoption of Biophilic Design among designers, owners and municipalities.

Case studies and tools will be shared that will educate the audience about how to implement and use Biophilic Design as a framework to create restorative buildings and communities that connect people to nature, place and culture.
