What is biophilic design?

A look at the work of social ecologist Stephen Kellert outlines the theory and practice of incorporating nature in design.

With nature it is possible to improve the built environment – that’s the idea behind biophilic design. Intended to create a good habitat for human beings, its fundamental goal is to promote physical and mental health, fitness and wellbeing.

It’s a concept rooted in human’s innate attraction to nature and natural processes, suggesting that this connection is a part of our genetic makeup built up over hundreds of thousands of years living in an agrarian society.

Find more about OLUS at his page.

D&T9: Kaitlyn Debiasse, Human Factors

Kirsty Thompson

Kaitlyn Debiasse, GSA Product Design Lecturer, took this week’s Design and Technology event. She spoke about human factors, inclusivity, and personalisation within design.

Most products are designed for 50th percentile male of average size and weight. An example of this is cars. For those who do not fall within this small percentage are much more likely to be injured of even killed. In fact, any seatbelt wearing female in a vehicle has 73% greater odds of being seriously injured – yet nothing has been done about it. This really annoys me, why should our lives be risked just because we aren’t of average male size? Why are we still designing for the 50th percentile male? What about females? Children? People who are above and below the average male? An average man is not an average human!

Female Increased Risk of Injury – Estimated increase of risk for moderate injuries in…
