Connecting people to experiences of nature in the built environment can lower stress and improve cognitive function-- this is biophilic design. This presentation will include the science, elements and case studies. It will highlight the results of a recently completed study of the impacts of biophilic design on learning outcomes and biometric stress measurements among middle school students.
Learning Objective 1:
Hear how to incorporate specific biophilic design strategies that will produce a positive impact on learning space user's well-being and academic success.
Learning Objective 2:
Learn to techniques to access the performance of the spaces you design with testing and biometric measurements.
Learning Objective 3:
Become inspired to replicate the methodology, and create your own practitioner-academic research partnership and studies.
Learning Objective 4:
Apply the principles of neuroscience theory of function, perception, and biophlic design and access a compressive list of precedent research.
