Biophilic Design: A Social Movement Journey
MetadataShow full item record
Biophilic design is a new social movement about the expression of the innate human nature connection in the built environment which brings social, environmental and economic benefits. Following the four phases of heuristic inquiry this research investigated the social movement of biophilic design to illuminate and explicate the motivators, drivers and components of the movement in the emergent, coalescent and mainstreaming stages. These contribute towards developing a framework for mainstreaming biophilic design.
