Special Issue Information

The biophilic approach, coined by Harvard entomologist Edward O. Wilson, emphasizes the innate human need to connect with nature and other life forms. In recent years, the concept has gained significant attention among landscape architects and urban planners. In this special issue, we invite authors and researchers in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning to explore the potential of biophilic design in urban settings. We encourage contributions on a range of topics, including:

  • biophilic architecture and urbanism,
  • innovative approaches to integrating nature into the built environment,
  • the role of biophilia in promoting urban sustainability.
  • urban biophilic heritage 

Additionally, we welcome submissions that explore the historical context of biophilic design and its evolution over time. Join us in this exploration of the possibilities of biophilic urban design and its potential for creating healthier and more livable cities.
