NATURE DESIGN AND US | Biophilic Design Day (Melbourne Design Week in Geelong)

This event will be a one-day symposium and immersive experience of the importance of biophilia, our innate and fundamental need to be in nature. How we design our homes, workplaces and cities to include more of it and be better places in which to live.

Using the unique location of a restored 1850s house with one-acre urban farm, the importance of biophilia will be explored though direct sensory experience, design experimentation, indoor and outdoor installations, talks and panel discussions. The historic perspective of our changing urban garden landscape and the way it impacts our lives will be put into context.
