Biophilic Design

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the latest edition of Green Wall News. This month, we highlight biophilia, the concept undergirding all we do at AgroSci. Conceived by renowned naturalist E. O. Wilson, biophilia is the idea that human beings have an innate need to connect with nature. Research has confirmed Wilson’s hypothesis, showing that people are happier, healthier and more productive when they have regular contact with the natural world.

The biophilic design movement grew out of Wilson’s insights. It aims to incorporate nature into indoor, outdoor and urban spaces. Green walls are a key element of biophilic design. AgroSci’s patented air-purifying Aerogation™ system is an especially powerful biophilic element because of its unique ability to increase the natural air cleaning ability of plants about 200 times.

In this issue, we feature recent pieces on biophilia, including an article in an Arizona State University publication, a BBC story on improving urban air quality and a piece by Koru Architects on increasing productivity.

We also have stories on the green wall at the new Sacramento Kings arena, a Mexican seaside home wrapped in green walls and a seminar on green cities.

In AgroSci news, we just installed a green wall at a third 1 Hotel property, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, which is slated to open later this month. We want to give special thanks to Harrison Green for their outstanding design. Scroll to the bottom for a picture of the new wall.

Business opportunity! AgroSci is looking for distributors both in the United States and overseas. We’d love to talk to anyone interested in selling our products, especially green roof and other firms that can provide soup to nuts services, installation, design and maintenance.
