Biophilia is the science behind the creation of spaces that bring people into contact with nature, improving their productivity, creativity and overall health and well-being. Interface aims to inspire architects and designers to think differently, to use biophilic design to harness the power of nature in the workplace.
By demonstrating the positive effects of biophilic design, Interface plans to inspire the kind of thinking that can ultimately change the world - beautiful thinking.
Interface’s vision is to help transform the world with beautiful thinking, one city at a time. Starting with London.
To celebrate inspirational biophilic design in the city, we’ve created a unique guide to twenty-two of the capital’s most outstanding and beautiful nature-inspired spaces.
