Biophilia, the New Bling

Not a drug, or is it? Biophilia is a love for nature, and hopefully we'll see more of this built into our buildings in the near future. In theory, biophilic design elements impact our health and ability to heal more than we may realize. A biologist (of course), E.O. Wilson coined the term biophilia in 1984. Roots took hold, and the concept morphed naturally into a modern-day trend in sustainable design. Thankfully. For more on this cool phenom, check out buildinggreen.com a very useful site.

I think that's true. After all, many people would say that there's nothing more relaxing than things in nature, such as ocean waves, rainforest sounds, relaxing on a breezy, unadulterated(by technology) beach, etc etc.
