A new exhibition at the Museum of Bath Architecture presents creative visions for engaging with nature in urban areas. Biophilic Bath – The Green City You See, from 10 July – September, will feature designs by innovative architects, engineers, and designers, which show future ‘biophilic’ visions of the city. Exhibition entrance is included in the cost of Museum entry.

Biophilic design is defined as “design which focuses on those aspects of the natural world that have contributed to human health and productivity in the age-old struggle to be fit and survive”. The exhibition will present a variety of radical ideas that intrigue, delight and energize, and inspire the future sustainability and climate resilience of the city.

Alex Sherman, CEO of BPT, says: From 2024 developers in the UK will be required to increase the biodiversity of their sites by 10% under the new biodiversity net gain legislation, so city greening and sustainability are priorities now – not just in the future.

Joanna Robinson, Sustainability and Design Manager at BPT says: “Each of these imaginative site-specific biophilic design responses includes direct or indirect experiences of nature, incorporates low carbon materials and urban greening and nurtures the love of Bath and its unique landscape setting. We hope that this new exhibition will get people thinking and talking about a new consciousness towards restorative, habitat-friendly urban design for people and nature.”
