As part of Melbourne Design Week, Deakin researchers will answer : What is biophilic design and why could it change the way we live in our homes and cities? This event is a one-day laboratory that explores the importance of biophilia, the innate need for humans to connect to nature, and its role in the design of our homes and cities. Using the unique location of a restored 1850s house with a one-acre urban farm, the day will include workshops, indoor and outdoor installations, talks and panel discussions to open your minds to the design possibilities of connecting to nature.
