"How can nature be part of our artistic work and provide us with health benefits and wellbeing feelings? The unique two-day node "Nature In" will answer this question and will shed light on our understanding of biophilic design, in order to inspire an interdisciplinary debate on nature-connected art design.

I will be giving a new two-day node on biophilic design together with Professor of Interior Design Dr Kristina Fridh at Konstfack - University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm during Research Week 2024*. We will also be counting on the participation of Professor Nicolai Bo Andersen from The Royal Danish Academy – Centre for Sustainable Building Culture

The two-day node includes:


- "A Matter of Beauty—Material Ecologies within the Planetary Boundaries" with Professor Nicolai Bo Andersen.  January 22 15.30-16.15

- "The Art Making of Biophilic Design" with Dr. Carmen García Sánchez lecture on the basic principles of biophilic design and their application in the art making  January 24 10.00-11.30

- "Japanese Gardens —Interacting Processes in and with Nature" with Professor in Interior Architecture,and Dr. Kristina Fridh, lecture on Japanese gardens (Konstfack- University of Arts, Crafts and Design) January 24 13.00-15.00

SEMINAR/WORKSHOP and DISCUSSIONS Target groups: Konstfack Master students of Spatial and Industrial Design, Craft and Fine Art.

* Throughout Research Week 2024, we will have the opportunity to reflect upon the ways in which artistic research has the ability to affect and interact with society at large, encountering, engaging with, and contributing to the sharing of new insights. 

The programme will contribute to the international exchange between The Royal Danish Academy. Architecture Design Conservation, in Copenhagen and Konstfack . – University of Arts, Crafts and Design, in Stockholm.
