Deakin University’s Dr Phillip Roös, an expert in environmental design and architecture, gives a fascinating explanation of biophilia – the concept of our innate connection to nature in design – in a new video on Australia’s Science Channel.

‘Sometimes I refer it to sensory architecture because we have to include all our human senses to experience a place – particularly a place that has soul.’
