W2W presents the latest in our series of educational events for Architects and Designers, in association with KI Europe
Did you know that as little as 5-20 minutes in a natural environment can trigger a positive ‘restorative’ response?
Benefits include: decreased blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormones as well as increased self-esteem, positivity and enhanced concentration.
Such benefits can be replicated in an urban setting through the application of Biophilic Design.
Join W2W and KI at the Dean Hotel on Thursday October 13th from 5:30 to find out more from biophilia expert Joseph Clancy
Biophilic Design is a design ethic, still in its relative infancy, which aims to restore natural stimuli to the built environment and enhance the cognitive psycho-physiological well-being of urban inhabitants.
This presentation will look at the importance of biophilia for the health and well-being of urban inhabitants, and its application to the built environment through Terrapin Bright Green’s 14 Patterns of Biophilic Design. Along with this, the challenges facing the implementation of Biophilic Design in Ireland will also be examined.
Joe Clancy is a Project Landscape Architect at Bradley Murphy Design Ltd, based outside Birmingham, England. He is the co-author of Terrapin Bright Green’s 14 Patterns of Biophilic Design and has been published in several international journals on the subject of biophilic design.
Admission is free, but places are limited.
