Course Description: 

The human body was made for connection - connection to mother nature and all of the healthinfusing, mood-boosting benefits she has to offer. But let’s face it, people spend most of their waking hours indoors; at the office, in the car commuting to and from the office, at home catching up on email from the overflow that wasn’t accomplished at the office.

And since ‘the office’ is becoming the place we spend our days (and sometimes even our nights), it is becoming incredibly important to design workspaces that promote happiness, health, and productivity, through the purposeful infusion of biophilic design.

This CEU educates participants on why people need a strong connection to nature at work, the benefits of making these connections through purposeful design, and the tools architects and designers can use to bring the indoors out and the outdoors in in both practical and inspirational ways in the future.
