Oceania Biophilia Summit | Online | 2020 Summit Series

27 August at 9:00 am - 28 August at 1:30 pm

$80 – $200

2020 Summit Series | 1. Oceania Biophilia Summit

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.
Registration will open in July - sign up for early registration and to receive updates!

THE THEME: Prospect and Refuge

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.


Do you have an inspiring project, piece of research or workshop related to Biophilia? We'd love to hear about it! 
Applications are now closed. All applicants will know the outcome of their submission by Monday 6th July.



A series of presentations and conversations to get the inspiration flowing and to explore the key factors in effective integration of biophilic principles.


Time to turn those ideas into solutions! Collaborate with other participants to design plans for a real life space, where biophilic experiences will greatly benefit its tenants.

Brought to you by

And our Biophilic Design Initiative Principal Partner
