“… no podemos ganar esta batalla para salvar especies y entornos sin forjar un vínculo emocional entre nosotros y la naturaleza así well— no lucharemos para salvar lo que no amamos (sólo lo apreciaremos en un sentido abstracto) …” Stephen Jay Gould Reviviendo la Biofilia Sky Factory patocinadores

¿Qué es la Biofilia?

El término Biofilia significa amor a la vida o amor a la naturaleza (bio = vida / naturaleza + philia = amor). El concepto se originó como una hipótesis científica introducida en la década de los 80’s por el biólogo de Harvard Edward O. Wilson. Biofilia se refiere a la necesidad instintiva del ser humano, basada en la necesidad genética de conexión con la naturaleza — una necesidad establecida debido a que la evolución humana se produjo al vivir en estrecho contacto con el mundo natural. Ahora bien, el concepto de Biofilia es cada vez más relevante, ya que aborda la creciente preocupación de la sustentabilidad humana, provocada por una creciente indiferencia del ser humano por el mundo natural. En los últimos años, la Biofilia ha sido de especial interés para los arquitectos y diseñadores, generando el movimiento del Diseño biofílico en la arquitectura y el diseño, especialmente en el diseño de entornos de la salud.

¿Qué es el compromiso Biofílico?

Biophilic engagement refers to our contact and connections with beneficial and pleasant experiences of nature. Even though human beings live in ever greater isolation from nature, we all share a genetic predisposition to favor experiences of nature. Lack of biophilic engagement has been linked to certain developmental deficiencies and psycho-physiological problems. Increasing biophilic engagement has been linked to many benefits for mind and body.

What does it mean to enliven biophilia?

By increasing conscious engagement and contact with nature, our love for and appreciation of nature is enlivened. Enlivened biophilia strengthens the bond with nature that we developed over the eons of human evolution. Personal identification with nature promotes our psycho-physiological fitness and well-being. When we find refreshment from a walk in nature, we are experiencing the effects of biophilic enlivenment.

What are the benefits of enlivening biophilia?

Research conducted in many fields over the last several decades has shown that biophilic engagement has significant effects on mind, body, behavior and social interaction. Specifically, research on nature and health has established that natural daylight and views to nature improve the comfort and healing of patients in healthcare settings. Enlivening biophilia is a positive feedback dynamic. When we experience the benefits of engagement with nature — alleviation of stress, increased sociability, greater problem solving abilities, improved measures of physiological stability and health, etc. — we tend to further increase our contact with nature, which in turn increases the benefits gained from those experiences. Because human beings tend to care for whatever we appreciate and love, and because enlivening biophilia cultivates a greater appreciation and love for nature and life, enlivening biophilia promotes actions that favor the appreciation and protection of nature.

Sky Factory & Biophilia

Sky Factory creates realistic illusions of nature. Research indicates that views to nature, either real or simulated, have significant and beneficial effects on health outcomes in healthcare settings. Views to nature have been positively correlated with worker satisfaction and productivity. People favor positive experiences of nature — a clear sunny day, an expansive panorama from a commanding position, water running through a stream, the endless shifting of clouds in the sky. Sky Factory's products are not meant to replace those genuine experiences, but to make them available in interior spaces (where we spend so much of our contemporary lives) devoid of access to biophilic engagement. By enlivening biophilia Sky Factory illusions contribute to appreciation and care for the real nature around us.
