The point of Biophilic design is not the negative impact we as a society have on the environment and nature but the positive impact the environment and nature has on us. Biophilic architects main concerns are for beauty and perfection; tackling the sensory deprivation we encounter on a daily basis. If we spend time in environments where there is no natural light or connection with the 'real' and organic world we become deprived of that connection and become 'disconnected' We need that connection with the texture of surfaces; the transient and ever changing elements otherwise we become deprived of our natural affinity to sensory awareness and changes.
Imagine a life with no relation to the contrasting cycles of life day/night, life/death, summer/winter?????
Imagine a landscape, a city with no brief interruptions of green vegetation or plant life?????
