Bookings are open for the Living Future Institute of Australia’s Biophilic Design Workshops in Sydney (31 March) and Melbourne (22 April).

The term ‘biophilic design’ is being both increasingly used and increasingly misunderstood. As part of the Living Future Institute’s Biophilic Design Initiative, leading experts will deliver educational workshops to enable participants to integrate biophilic design into building projects, both new and existing.

Participants will be guided through the principles of biophilic design, learn from real world examples, discover how to integrate these principles into projects, and step up to a group design challenge. For the latter, participants are also encouraged to bring their own projects that they wish to investigate through the lens of biophilic design.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the patterns of biophilic design
  • Understand the impact biophilic design has on people and projects
  • Demonstrate an application of biophilic design
