Mar 13, 2017 9:45am ‐ Mar 13, 2017 10:45am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $30.00

Description

What does it mean to apply biophilic design to health care buildings? Biophilic design principles connect health care facility users to nature and create a positive, healing environment, which can reduce patient length of stay and lead to better outcomes. Biophilic design promotes positive interactions between people and nature. If nature's genius is applied correctly in designing spaces, the result will be a healing, recovery-conducive environment for all humans. This approach can also reduce the cost of health care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain effects of biophilic design on human health.
  • Apply biophilic design to health care and senior living facility design.
  • Implement biophilic design adapted to local climate.
  • Describe the economic benefits of implementing biophilic design in health care buildings.
