Biophilia, Wellness and the Visual Environment
In an effort to reach members beyond our established city centers, IIDA NC is offering a CEU,
hosted and presented by Designtex and Corporate Furniture Solutions.
In this course, attendees will gain an understanding of the concept of Biophilia and learn how Biophilic design principles
can be employed in an interior. The design aspects will focus on visual and material elements that give occupants a
connection to nature, especially through surface materials. Attendees will also learn about how Biophilia and “positive
distraction” can reinforce beneficial effects for wellness. The course will also touch on current Building standards that give
credits for employing Biophilic principles
