Biophilic Design Workshop: Adelaide

14 June 2018 at 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

$95 – $120

“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

The term ‘biophilic design’ is being both increasingly used and increasingly misunderstood. As part of our Biophilic Design Initiative, the Living Future Institute of Australia and leading experts are delivering educational workshops to enable participants to integrate biophilic design into building projects, both new and existing.

Held at the Minor Works Building in Adelaide, participants will be guided through the principles of biophilic design, learn from real world examples, discover how to integrate these principles into projects, and step up to a group design challenge. For the latter, participants are also encouraged to bring their own projects that they wish to investigate through the lens of biophilic design.


Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the patterns of biophilic design
  • Understand the impact biophilic design has on people and projects
  • Demonstrating an application of biophilic design

Architects and engineers may apply for CPD points for this event.

Spaces are very limited. Register via the form below.

$95 for LFIA members

$120 for non-members

Includes vegetarian morning tea.

Rory Martin, Sustainability Manager, Residential at Frasers Property Australia

“For me biophilic design celebrates the experience of life through positive interactions with the built form, binding us to them in a way. It is these special bonds that help us regenerate as they become part of our experience and move us towards a truly living future.
