The Summit provides all attendees with the opportunity to be immersed in the exploration of biophilia and how this can truly influence the design process. All whilst enjoying the environs of the beautiful Mt Aspiring National Park and Camp Glenorchy, an eco-retreat designed to the Living Building Challenge.

We are deeply honoured to have both Amanda Sturgeon, CEO of the International Living Future Institute & author of Creating Biophilic Buildings, and David Trubridge, renowned International furniture designer, join us for this interactive event, along with Leslie Van Genkel and Stephen Choi. During the summit, we will help you foster a deeper understanding and examination of the potential benefits and practical application of Biophilia, in built environment projects.

To take a deep dive into Biophilia and specifically its application in the Built Environment:

  1. How the benefits Biophilic design can contribute to human health.

  2. The importance of place when applying Biophilic principles to design.

  3. How to integrate and apply Biophilia in a project, or the built environment through the development of effective frameworks.
