Health studies document the increase in stress and greater prevalence of some mental disorders in the cities. Constant interaction of urban life is leading to psychological problems.
Research shows that even a brief interaction with nature has mental healing benefits. Natural features in the cities are a necessity, features that enhance human health. House needs to be homely and more alive; home needs to be a structure that can ‘BREATHE’. Cities depend on a healthy environment for proper functioning. Cities need to incorporate nature to bring in the positive effect on mental health which can be achieved by interaction with nature.
“Biophilic design is about the value of the embodied beauty of nature that we can bring to our everyday lives, we can create an identity, a sense of belonging and well-being.”
