Biophilic design and the impacts on health
A synthesis of global research on the health impacts of using wood and natural materials in our buildings.
Authored by Dr. Graham Lowe, Wood, Well-being and Performance: The Human and Organizational Benefits of Wood Buildings summarizes the latest scientific research and converging trends on biophilic design.
It explores wood’s impact on well-being and human performance when it is a design feature visible to a building’s occupants. Architects, interior designers, researchers, civic leaders, facility managers and anyone interested in biophilia, developing and supporting healthy and productive learning, working and healing environments can benefit from this latest resource.
