Nature, Design and Us

Nature, Design and Us 
Saturday 23 March 2019
I wanted to introduce to you the opportunity to take part in our exciting event for Melbourne Design Week in Geelong.
It is called Nature,Design and Us and is about biophilic design, our innate and fundamental need to connect to nature. Biophilic Design is part of a global movement of architects, designers, artists and planners who can see the importance of recognizing our
deepest feelings of well being and sense of place to make designs that enhance our lives. The 14 patterns of biophilic design can be used to design our homes and cities to be better, healthier places in which to live, both for us and the other species with
 which we share this planet.
 The patterns of biophilic design will be examined through talks, installations and workshops throughout the day and the program is arranged so people can come for all or only those parts in which they are interested. Speakers participants include Dr Phillip Roos, head of the Live Smart Lab at Deakin University, Landscape designer Stephen Read, prominent indigenous artist Lee Darroch, designer Nicola Cerini and Deakin University artists and academics Dr Rea Dennis and Dr Cameron Bishop
 It will culminate in a panel discussion followed by drinks  in which we will look at how Geelong could become part of the growing international biophilic cities network.
The program only costs $10 including light lunch and refreshments and is designed so people can select those workshops they wish to attend. There are two small materials fees for two workshops.
The booking link is through the NGV Melbourne Design Week website or directly at :
