Paper Presentation-Biophilic Design of Schools: Exploring Children’s Views.
The application of biophilia would be a design resolution in schools because of its impact on children’s health and well-being, which has been more important since the pandemic started; however, it remains quite unexplored in school design in the UK. This study presents the findings of five case studies. It also highlights how the connectivity between design of schools and nature can promote children’s wellbeing by presenting views of children in a primary school in England. Finally, this study suggests how primary school children could be involved in a co-design process in order to evaluate biophilic design patterns.
