In New York, the Connection Between Nature and Residence Grows
17 May 2022
Every day, climate change confronts us with a deeper understanding of our interconnectivity with the planet. The question is no longer whether or not design should become more sustainable but how we can begin to make sustainable practices an integral part of how we build our homes and cities. Biophilic design is an approach that believes we need to be nurtured by nature as much as it needs our protection. It is predicated on the idea that cohabiting more efficiently with nature is not just essential to the planet but to our own sense of well-being. In some of the most innovative developments across New York City, greenery is growing not only along with, but also as a part of, this biophilic approach to architecture.
