ABC: Activation Biophilic Cities  - 4-5th September 2018

The University of Greenwich Green Roofs and Living Walls Centre and the Department of Architecture and Landscape are proud to announce their ABC: Activating Biophilic Cities London Conference on 4-5 September 2018.

Keynote Speakers:

Dr Tim Beatley, University of Virgina, is an internationally recognised biophilic city researcher and author and founder of the Biophilic Cities Network Project.

Oliver Heath is an industry recognised expert in the field of biophilic architectural and interior design.

 

The aim of this conference is to bring together academics, built environment professionals (architects, planners, landscape architects, environmental specialists etc.), educational and health professionals in order to share the latest research and best practice in biophilic design and to kick-start the pace of change towards holistically providing healthy places and spaces that improve the quality of life for people in our cities.

 

The event will consist of keynote addresses by eminent experts and peer reviewed papers on the principles and practice of biophilic design. Workshops will be used to develop a 'Biophilic City Framework' which will facilitate the widespread adoption of the principles of biophilic design. The workshops will cover the following themes:

 

  • Planning the biophilic city
  • Designing restorative landscapes 
  • Well buildings
  • The biophilic workplace
  • Designing healing spaces
  • Biophilic learning spaces

 

Participate and activate your part in this process. Become part of the drive to turn the commonplace into the exceptional place.
