At the heart of nature-inspired design is biophilia, a term popularized by American biologist E.O. Wilson to describe humanity's innate connection to nature. Biophilic design transcends mere aesthetics, integrating natural elements, materials, and light into the built environment to create harmonious spaces that contribute to physical and mental well-being. It's about creating environments where humans feel connected to the natural world through direct nature, indirect nature, and space and place conditions.
