Biophilic Design: The Architecture of Life
7:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Chicago Botanic Garden
Alsdorf Auditorium, Regenstein Center
Director: Bill Finnegan, Executive Producer: Stephen Kellert
Registration is free ($5 suggested donation)
Our cities and suburbs are often designed in ways that degrade the environment and alienate us from the nature that we need in a deep and fundamental way. While the recent trend in green architecture has decreased the negative environmental impact, we still need to reconnect to the natural world. That is where the innovative school of "biophilic design" comes in, which designs buildings that connect people and nature, leading to healthy and productive habitats for modern humans.
This film looks at the movement through discussion with experts in the field (including Stephen Kellert, author of the book Biophilic Design), as well as examples ranging from the Musee du quai Branly in Paris to New York City's Grand Central Station to Seattle's own High Point housing community.
