QUESTION: Why are humans innately drawn toward natural life and
how does acting upon this pull benefit both humans and nature itself?
For this project after extensive research and design concepting, I created a mountain structure covered in moss and live plants and mirrors. The inclusion of live plants was essential to the purpose of the project conclusion: Only through direct observation, interaction and self reflection can we gain deeper understanding of our biophilic pull, which will not only heal our bodies and minds, but the world around us.
“It comes down to the daily choices we make and how we choose to think about the world around us. So how can we more deeply appreciate the nature that surrounds us and breathes life into our bodies and our minds? We act upon our biophilia.”
