Abstract:

Biophilic design is an innovative way of designing the places where we live, work, and learn. People need nature in a deep and fundamental fashion, but we have often designed our cities and suburbs in ways that both degrade the environment and alienate us from nature. The recent trend in green architecture has decreased the environmental impact of the built environment, but it has accomplished little in the way of reconnecting us to the natural world, the missing piece in the puzzle of sustainable development. The film features buildings that connect people and nature-- hospitals where patients heal faster, schools where children's test scores are higher, offices where workers are more productive, and communities where people know more of their neighbors and families thrive.

Biophilic Design: The Architecture of Life

(EMRO user published 2012-09-04 ) Very Good Permalink
Biophilic Design: The Architecture of Life is a solid entry in the somewhat saturated field of environmental documentaries; however, unlike many environmental documentaries, this film does not dwell on much discussed problems but discusses concrete solutions.
