In-Person and Webinar Preview - Wood Ceilings - Natural Materials in Biophilic Design

Wood Ceilings - Natural Materials in Biophilic Design (CTL21_3)

Course Description:

There is no question that a walk in the park, fresh air, and the sun’s warmth on one’s skin surrounded by grass and trees is a refreshing, positive experience. Driven by a growing body of research proving the physical, physiological, and emotional benefits promoted by connections to nature, architects and designers are actively incorporating natural elements, particularly wood, into their designs. This course demonstrates how by creating a direct connection to nature, wood ceilings and wall systems can boost occupant health, well-being, and productivity.

Learning Objectives:

  • List the factors driving biophilic design with natural materials in commercial spaces
  • Identify the research-proven physical, physiological, and emotional benefits of biophilic interiors, particularly wood
  • Review the design and installation details of various wood ceiling and wall systems and their applications
  • Discuss the pros and cons of natural wood, engineered wood, and faux wood products in relation to biophilia and other sustainable design factors
