Today I discovered this article form Dec. 2015 on interior architecture.com thanks to a tweet with a link to it sent out by Toronto's Figure 3 Design. Thanks Figure 3 for sharing this. It has me transfixed so I wanted to share here as well. It's a great example of what I call evergreen content.

Biophilic design refers to design that connects us with the living world. So many of the points in the article are things we take for granted, but reading through brings you some aha moments and I love knowing the official term and the reason for design gestures I always find compelling (views, natural light, fire light). I highly recommend this read, so grab a beverage and click below.
