Biophilia can be defined as an innate, deep and emotional connection to nature. Using this connection in design to benefit both people and the environment is becoming a growing trend in the fields of architecture, urban planning, and interior design on micro and macro scales.
Cityscapes uses live plants to strengthen this connection in areas where nature is sparse. This is especially important today as more and more buildings appear in Boston and other cities around the country and around the world. Traditionally, with urban expansion, many natural open spaces are lost, but designing with nature in mind will benefit us all in the end.
