In this course, we explore our inherent connection and attraction to nature, identified as biophilia. We explore the ways that our lives are dependently and beneficially intertwined with nature. We look at the trend towards Biophilic Design — integrating nature into­architecture to enliven biophilia’s restorative properties. Illusion, illusions of nature, and sky illusions will be examined in relationship to architectural design, and Biophilic Design, in particular. Finally, we’ll delve into the purpose, creation, and applications of sky-image ceilings. Click here for more information.
