The Economics of Biophilic Design: Enhancing Lives and Driving Results

At Plant Solutions, nature has always been our inspiration. As designers and business professionals, we always seek new ways to infuse Mother Earth’s wonders into our creations. This is accomplished through biophilic design – the practice of connecting people with nature by incorporating natural elements into our built environment. It’s no longer enough to recognize our innate connection with nature.

Businesses must understand how to leverage biophilia to improve the lives of those they are invested in and maximize bottom-line results. We are so excited to discover that Terrapin Bright Green has released their second edition, “The Economics of Biophilia: Why Designing with Nature in Mind Makes Financial Sense,” a complete rewrite of their first edition.
