Save Your Seat in Next Week's Workshop: Design with Biophilia

Grab your tickets now for the next workshop in our regenerative design series, Designing with Biophilia, led by Elizabeth Calabrese, a leading educator and author of "The Practice of Biophilic Design," coming in one week from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20.

The concepts of biophilia ("love of life") and biophilic design are growing as they are part of major building certification programs intending to promote human health and wellbeing, as well as planetary healing by holistically integrating nature and natural systems and processes back into the built environment.

In this biophilic design process workshop, a series of design vignettes will be offered to allow attendees to experience the biophilic design process step by step based on biophilic principles and the ecomimetic system integration at various scales.
