Magazine Description

Since it’s hot out and there’s no appetite for outdoor projects, our August issue takes a deep dive into Biophilic design. (see page 38) First coined by American Biologist Edward O Wilson in the 1980’s, as he witnessed how increasing rates of urbanisation was creating a disconnect with the natural world. Meaning love of nature, “Biophilia focuses on human’s innate attraction to nature and natural processes.” Post pandemic, Biophilia is more important than ever to our health and well-being as we navigate our lives in increasingly urban settings. Landscape architects and urban planners have used biophilic design for many years to bring the outdoors inside, but it’s about so much more than curating a section of greenery in your apartment or office space. One of our featured projects that has successfully implemented the principles of Biophilic design is the Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai at Tilal Al Ghaf in Dubai. (see page 10) When the school opens in September, pupils and staff will be surrounded by living moss and green walls. Studies show that education spaces massively benefit from this improved connection to nature “with increased rates of learning by 20-25%, improved test results, concentration levels and attendance and reduced impacts of ADHD.” We also feature rejuvenation projects with a focus on using reclaimed land and infrastructure in the suburbs of Shanghai, Moscow, as well as an urban beach project in the emirate of Sharjah. Enjoy the issue!
