The Essex Library’s Centerbrook Architects Lecture Series: Misha Semenov

February 28 @ 7:00 pm

Architect Misha Semenov with building in ecology: curing nature deficit disorder through design

Did you know that Americans spend over 90% of their time indoors? Increasingly, that indoor environment is sealed off from the outside world. As we lose awareness of the natural world around us, we develop mental and physical illnesses and exacerbate the environmental crisis. The new emphasis on biophilia and the emotional connection to nature is proving to be just as important as the focus on resource efficiency that guided the first wave of green buildings. Imagine if buildings, instead of sealing us off from nature and its processes, could be designed to celebrate them! Imagine if facades were designed for birds and insects, walls were decorated with fractal ornament, and bridges lit up with the movement of fish… Join Centerbrook Architects designer Misha Semenov on Friday, February 28 at 7 p.m. in The Cube at Centerbrook Architects  as he presents projects and ideas designed to reconnect us with nature placing them in the context of the larger Green Architecture movement.

 

This event is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Cube at Centerbrook Architects is located at 67 Main St. in Centerbrook.
