Biophilic Design Initiative Launch

The Living Future Institute Australia (LFIA) has launched the Biophilic Design Initiative to provide education and knowledge sharing opportunities, to inspire built environment professionals, and reconnect everyone with nature to improve our daily lives.

BIOPHILIC DESIGN is the practice of connecting people and nature within our built environments and communities. Biophilic Design elements include:

  • Place-based relationships
    Evolved human-nature relationships
    Natural patterns and processes
    Light and space
    Environmental features
    Natural shapes and forms

The Initiative offers introductory workshops, deep dive masterclasses, information forums and symposiums through to biophilia photographic competitions and the Living Building Challenge – the world’s most rigorous certification that calls for the creation of buildings that operate as efficiently and beautifully as nature’s architecture.
