The Advocate for Environments that Foster the Human Spirit

..This personal identifier speaks to my growing interest in environmental psychology, humanistic spaces, and biophilic design. A.O. Wilson´s biophilic hypothesis guides this operating premise. Biophilic design builds on the growing understanding that human inspiration from nature is “hardwired” in our psyches.

In my professional practice, it becomes increasingly clear that humanistic spaces are crucial to true sustainability of humanity in this rapidly evolving era. Too often, we continue to turn to technological fixes, yet we cannot buy our way out of climate change. If we save ourselves, it will be because we saved the world, and the only way we can do that is if we slow down, appreciate and find inspiration in buildings, landscapes, and the “wild”, because only then will we engage fully and save the world.
