GreenED Webinar: Creating Nature Connections (Biophilia for Google)

Creating Nature Connections

Date(s) - 13 May '21
4:00 pm - 5:15 pm


Biophilia is the concept that humans have an innate desire to connect with nature and natural systems. Embedding these principles in the design of our buildings and spaces can improve the environmental performance, but more so, improves the life of the occupants where people are healthier, more satisfied, and more productive.

In this session, award-winning Parabola Architecture will highlight different perspectives and goals of biophilic design and share insights into how biophilic design can create value and regenerative outcomes, as they have applied this framework in their design process for Google’s headquarters, 1212 Bordeaux, California U.S.
