This hands-on, inspirational and educational workshop is project specific; generally with participants from all specializations on a project: such as owner, board members, designers, engineers, cost estimators, general contractor, artist, and community members and is facilitated in an educational, research-based, mindful, creative and multi-sensory approach. The final result is a biophilic design project design strategy aimed to positively affect human and ecological health and well-being. This workshop can be facilitated to meet the requirements for Biophilic Design, as it relates to the Living Building Challenge, and the WELL Building Standard.
2. Biophilic by Design: THRIVE! Reinvigorate yourself in a creative, educational, engaging and immersive workshop.
