The Oceania Biophilia Summit is an exploration of our innate connection to nature, and to each other. Together we will delve into the patterns and integration of biophilic design in the built environment, and collaborate in teams to shape effective connection experiences for a real life project.
This annual event was first held in Camp Glenorchy in New Zealand in 2019. This year we bring it to you online, in collaboration with Rākeiora – the Living Future NZ team.
It will be held as two half-day sessions, on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th August.
Prospect and Refuge is part of Stephen R. Kellert’s ‘Biophilic Design Elements and Attributes‘. It refers to a psychological need to feel safe in a place of shelter and see into the distance to prepare for what comes next.
A timely and necessary concept to explore, given the global context.
PRE-SUMMIT WORKSHOP: The Biology of Biophilia | 20 August (CLOSED)
One week before the Summit, dive into the principles of biophilic design with this interactive workshop, designed to foster a deeper understanding of the biology of prospect, refuge, mystery and peril.
LFIA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the country where we live, learn, and work, and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters, and culture. We pay our respects to them and to their Elders past, present and emerging.
