Nature of Place Symposium
Please note, this event has expired.
At Phipps’ first Nature of Place Symposium, the concept of biophilia finds a new expression as leaders across disciplines come together to discuss the influence and impact of biophilia on their work and the work of the future.
A Symposium About Biophilia
The implications of biophilia extend across a vast array of disciplines including design and engineering, nutrition, psychology, public health, education, biology and the humanities. Biophilia is expressed all over the world every day, through complex collaborations such as the design and construction of buildings and landscapes; and intimate, personal encounters including nature hikes and home gardening.
