Biophilic Design Pattern #7 :
Connection with Natural Systems
An awareness to natural system changes, cycles of life, and seasonality connects us to the larger ecosystem around us. The experience of a changing landscape, of rain events, or of animal migrations provide reminders that we are inhabiting a larger world often inspiring feelings of relaxation, reflection, and wonder. The connection to our larger ecosystem is rooted deep within each of us. Integrating, emphasizing, or simulating such system changes into our built environment captivates us and improves our mood. The image of early fall gives us cozy, relaxing feelings.
