Susanne Angarano, Principal and Senior Interior Designer, co-presented at the International Living Future Institute’s Living Product Expo on September 13, 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA. The presentation “Biophilic Design Integration: Macro to Micro and the Spaces In Between” engaged attendees on learning ways to craft the qualitative sustainable narrative, creating a stronger awareness of and connection to the natural environment. Articulating the qualitative sustainability aspects of a project provides a rich counterpart to its quantitative features. Under the Living Building Challenge, some projects radiate a strong sense of connection to nature, exemplifying the philosophies of Biophilia. Defining the essence of a project is essential for developing these strategies.
