INSPIRATION AND PREVIOUS WINNERS

Successful projects will highlight the biophilic design process and notable outcomes. The biophilic design narrative should tie together key design strategies to intended and desired outcomes and should describe how these were achieved. Narratives that affect occupant health, well-being, and orientation to nature will be highly considered. Projects that explore multi-sensory experiences should provide images and videos of significant moments and attributes as well as the story/intent behind them. We encourage submissions to highlight everyday life and the use of spaces.

Submissions will be showcased on the LFIA website as inspiration for local biophilic design projects.
For inspiration, please see winners of the 2023 National Biophilic Design Awards here and see the published Stephen R. Kellert Biophilic Design Award case studies here.

It acknowledges Kellert’s legacy as a pioneer in articulating and applying biophilic design principles to the built environment. His advocacy has encouraged the widespread adoption of the practice of design for human-nature connection.

The ILFI Stephen R. Kellert Biophilic Design Award 2023 is in recognition of achievements in the built environment, including buildings, interiors, and communities, that demonstrate the principles and benefits of biophilic design.
