Biophilia, the future of architecture

In this 2020 TEDxSeattle talk, learn about new scientific discoveries in biophilia and why architect Matthias Olt believes that designing spaces where humans connect with nature promotes healing for people and the environment. 

Olt describes the concept of biophilia and provides scientific evidence that incorporating nature-inspired, sinuous forms and natural materials into our built environments positively affect human physiology and psychology. Explaining the principles of biophilic design and how he applies them, Olt makes the case that inspiring architecture improves our performance, well-being, and connectedness.
