IDCEC Subject Code: Design Specialties
CEU Description: Learning Objectives: (1) To learn about the importance of well being in built environments.  (2) To understand the impact of design on our senses.  (3) To recognize the negative effects acoustics and air quality can have on humans and the restorative effects of biophilic design.  (4) To gain the knowledge to implement the essential design principals in creating built environments that promote well being.  Summary:  Well being extends beyond the traditional definition of health to encompass body, mind and spirit. It is a lifestyle that achieves a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, socially, physically and mentally. Many factors contribute to employee health and well being – from diet and exercise to working hours and stress. With more people spending most of their lives where they work, workspace design can also make a fundamental difference. It is not just about caring for people – it makes good business sense. Happy, healthy workers are less likely to be off sick and more likely to be productive and loyal to a company that supports their health and happiness.

(4) Communicate the growing awareness of design on human spaces by conveying the results and information behind the Human Spaces study.  Summary: The world of work is changing, and with it comes the realization that we as humans not only need spaces that are designed to meet our needs functionally, but also provide spaces to enhance our well being. We explore designing with the human in mind and the positive attributes that biophilic design can contribute to meet this goal. Information on the results of the Human Spaces report, the website and its collaborators also bring understanding of creating places to enhance well being.

CEU Description: Learning Objectives: (1) Understand the theory of Biophilia and the definition of Biophilic Design as it relates to the built environment. (2) Dissect the three core elements of Biophilic Design, and understand the fourteen patterns and where they fall into these elements. (3) Review projects that have incorporated Biophilic Elements and how one might implement Biophilic Design properties into your design.  (4) Discuss the economic, health and well being impacts of Biophilic Design. Summary:  Biophilic Design is “Great design that recognizes and embraces how humans are biological creatures with deeply rooted biological needs.” Our need to maintain a connection to nature – for our physical, physiological and emotional well-being – has been understood by artists, scientists and designers for many years. And most people have known it intuitively ever since the advances of industry began to separate us from natural surroundings. Today, the benefits to our bodies and minds of this contact with nature are being understood in more and more detail. And this increasing awareness has brought biophilia and biophilic design to the forefront of our thinking and behavior.
