Title: Biophilia : A Healing Connection
Author: Jensen, Kelsey
Abstract: Throughout recent years more people have been inhabiting cites which creates growth of the built environment and a greater disconnect between humans and nature. It becomes a matter of finding solutions to settle this disengagement and bring change to the built environment to aid human beings. It is through a fusion of investigation and contemplation on the beliefs of the affects of biophilia that a research facility focusing on health care emerges as the typology. The project will be located on an area of wooded land on the east border of Minnesota, .5 miles from the St. Croix River and the Wisconsin border. Although the site generates a feeling of seclusion, it is easily accessible from a state highway road. Through mixed method research this thesis project will utilize aspects of biophilia which in turn could be utilized further by human beings and the built environment.
