Biophilic Salon

The Sky Above Us:Lightness and Darkness in Biophilic Design.Barbara Shields, Ph.D., AICP with  Dr. Randy Woodley and Edith Woodley, co-sustainers  of Eloheh Farm will reflect on the influence of light on experiencing space. "We tend to think of architecture as substance, but this substance is just the lifeless mineral vessel. Natural light is the life-giving element. Conventionally, form leads design, but once we think in pace-mood terms, light must have a prominent role."  [Christopher Day, Places of the Soul].  How can we enrich our understanding of light and space to respect and embrace darkness in biophilic design? Can we learn to welcome darkness in urban settings?
