Join AIA|DC, Biophilic DC, USGBC National Capital Region, and Helena van Vliet, AIA, for this workshop that draws on science and human biology to explore the design of neurologically restorative spaces and places. During the first half of the workshop, van Vliet will provide the building blocks of a biophilic design methodology grounded in evolutionary biology, cognitive neuroscience, and the direct embodied experience of inhabiting place. 

During the second half of the workshop participants will be invited to engage in a guided ‘biophilic intervention’ exercise, followed by discussion. 

Tickets are $10 for AIA, Assoc AIA, DAC, and USGBC members. $40 for nonmembers.

This course has been approved for 2.5 GBCI CEUs, course number 0920015739.
