6 Biophilic Design Trends for 2019
The green architecture movement
Simply put, Biophilia mean the love of nature. The terms was originally coined by Phycologist Edward O. Wilson in 1984. He proposed the possibility that the deep affiliations humans have with other life forms and nature as a whole are rooted in our biology. Unlike phobias, which are the aversions and fears that people have of things in their environment, philias are the attractions and positive feelings that people have toward organisms, species, habitats, processes and objects in their natural surroundings.
Today Biophilic Design stands as the latest evolution of the green architecture movement of the last 30 years. What’s impressive, however, is how quickly this revolutionary design movement that integrates nature and natural patterns into building architecture, exploded onto the scene, moving from relative obscurity to the forefront of the commercial design world in just a few years. With this article we intend to highlight what we recognize as the top 6 trends in bioophilic design for 2019. Our hope is to inform and inspire.
