Biophilic Illusions by Sky Factory
In this course we explore our instinctive attraction and connection to nature, identified as biophilia. We explore the ways that our lives are dependently and beneficially intertwined with nature.
We review the research documenting the positive outcomes of natural environments on human health. We explore the 14 patterns of Biophilic Design and how integrating nature’s attributes into architecture enlivens biophilic engagement.
Optical illusions, bi-sensory illusions of nature, and research on sky illusions will be examined in relation to architectural design. Finally, we explore the framework, mechanics, and outcomes for health of generating Cognitive Biophilia.
