By invitation of the International Living Future Institute (https://living-future.org), Ralph Bicknese joined 25 leaders from the design industry to collaborate in the Biophilic Design Forum held December 6, 2017 at Islandwood on Bainbridge Island, Washington. The forum focused on strategizing to increase the implementation of biophilic design within the design of the built environment while connecting people to nature. Numerous studies demonstrate that biophilic connections enhance wellbeing and the appreciation and nurturing of nature.
