 Course Description  

Defined as “a love of the living world,” biophilia starts with accepting Einstein’s invitation to “Look! Look! Deep into nature [to] understand everything.” For millennia, humans have turned to nature in our quest for health, healing, and survival. Over the past century, however, we seem to have shunned nature-based solutions in favor of high-tech solutions. While we are reaping the benefits of many of these technological advances, we also see their limitations and dire unintended consequences. With the future of our species at stake, we are witnessing a renewed interest in the wisdom of nature to restore balance. This session is an opportunity to take a closer look at the frameworks that nature provides to help design professionals solve complex issues in the built environment. Organic design is not a trend or style. It is design based on programmatic needs of healing modalities. It’s about turning to nature for cues on how to design healthy buildings that promote all life forms by restoring symbiosis between our built environment and the natural ecosystems within which it is embedded.

 Learning Objectives   

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Discuss basic tenets of human sustainability in ways the built environment impacts our human biology. 
  • Explain the healing power of nature to enhance the user experience, reduce stress, improve cognitive performance and support health and wellness.
  • Implement architectural and design applications of nature’s geometry, as seen in structure, shape, color and  light. 
  • Utilize new nature-based design tools to provide design for improved health outcomes.

For most of history, mankind has lived in harmony with the rhythm of nature. However, Americans have evolved into a nation that spends 90% of its time isolated indoors. The result of this disconnect has proven to impact on both physical and mental health.

This course will examine the use of architecture, accessibility, lighting and finish materials to bring the outdoors to the interior space. Furthermore, we will consider how the principles of interior design can be applied to the outdoors. We will examine how blurring the line between indoor and outdoor spaces can contribute to a safer, healthier and more universal beautiful environment.

 Learning Objectives   

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Understand five different ways to add natural light to improve safety, comfort and energy efficiency.
  • Identify five ways to use architecture to promote safety while connecting the indoors to the outdoors.
  • Identify how to select materials and finishes to cross-pollinate the interior and exterior designs while reducing barriers and increasing functional accessibility.
  • Understand how to apply the elements of design to six key areas of outdoor design to increase safety, access and enhance well-being.
  • Identify the three primary outdoor areas and how to reduce safety hazards and improve barrier free design outside.

 Course Description  

Have you ever thought about how buildings are like humans?  In order for humans to function properly a complex set of body systems have to integrate and work together as a whole.  Our bodies must be able to respond to interruptions with resilience and adaptability and to age gracefully.  The approach to Whole Building Design treats buildings as if they were bodies that require a team approach to design to develop integration between the systems to achieve sustainability, energy efficiency and true universal accessibility.  Happy, healthy bodies vs some unnecessary surgeries; we’ll look at some successful and not so successful design approaches to integrating the body of a building.

 Learning Objectives   

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Analyze how the systems of the body correlate to the systems of a building.
  • Discuss the concept of Whole Building Design and how to develop systems and teams for a design project .
  • Understand the difference between the spirit of Accessibility Laws compared to Code Compliance.
  • Be able to reach out to and communicate with partners to gather first-hand information for creating universally accessible spaces.
  • Evaluate and analyze projects to determine if fully integrated accessibility was successfully achieved.
