Our Innate Connection with Nature

BIOPHILIC DESIGN is the practice of connecting people and nature within our built environments and communities.
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 a requirement of 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.
To learn more, meet our advisory panel, register your interest in a workshop, and keep up to date with our newsletter & events updates.

“We will never be truly healthy, satisfied, or fulfilled if we live apart and alienated from the environment from which we evolved.” Stephen R. Kellert


We are proud to be supported by this diverse group of industry leaders who are dedicated to exceeding the standards.
