Biophilic Design Workshop | Melbourne

22 April at 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

$60 – $150

“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 CERES Community Environment Park in East Brunswick, 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
  • Demonstrate an application of biophilic design

 

Register via the form below. This workshop will also be held in Sydney on Tuesday 31st March.

LFIA events are designed to be consistent with the national requirements for CPD across the built environment. More information on CPD: ArchitectsLandscape ArchitectsPlannersEngineers
