BIOPHILIC WORKSHOP REPORT:

CITIESALIVE
IN SEATTLE 2017
BY ELIZABETH CALABRESE, AIA

A Biophilic Design Workshop was offered during the CitiesAlive
Conference in Seattle last September led by Bill Browning of Terrapin
Bright Green and myself. The workshop was an excellent way to
explore the essence of bringing cities to life where humans and nature
co-exist symbiotically.

T

he term biophilia means
love of that which is living
and addresses our evolutionary need to connect
with nature, and natural systems
and processes in order to flourish as a species.
Although the term biophilia
is relatively new, we have lived
biophilically much of our existence as homo sapiens. Only recently, with the mass production
of goods and services, modern
electricity and other technology
have we disconnected from
nature in the built environment.
This disconnect is causing both

mental and physical health
related issues in humans while
promoting our alienation and
the subsequent degradation of
the natural environment - we
don't typically care for things we
don't experience.
The workshop began with
Bill Browning explaining
some of the scientific research
which shows that being in
and around natural settings
both directly and indirectly
promotes our mental and
physical wellbeing. Biophilic
environments can help reduce
stress, and improve our mood,

cognition, productivity and creativity. Terrapin has published
several monographs outlining the latest research. The 14 Patterns of Biophilic Design and The Economics of Biophilia are
two of several publications and papers by Terrapin. The links for
the publications are listed below.
I then explained the Principles of Biophilic Design and review
them here. Projects that are considered biophilic:
* foster repeated and sustained engagement with nature
* focus on human adaptations to the modern world that over
evolutionary time have advanced people's health, fitness, and
wellbeing
* encourage emotional attachment to particular settings and places
* promote positive interactions between people and nature that
encourage an expanded sense of relationship and responsibility
for the human and natural communities
* encourage mutual reinforcing, interconnected and integrated
architectural and engineered solutions (Kellert & Calabrese 2015)
