OUR OLD FRIEND BIOPHILIA

Spell checker still doesn't know what the word is, but you do.

Biophilia was in the news this week after Terrapin Bright Green put out their monthly newsletter. This article does a nice job of describing how the WELL building standard does, and doesn't, incorporate the 14 principles of biophilic design.

"While the two WELL Features for biophilia do introduce the conversation to a wider audience, as designers, we shouldn’t restrict our incorporation of biophilic design to those two Features alone."
