Terrapin’s Bill Browning will be a keynote speaker at the Grey to Green Conference presented by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) in Toronto on August 25th, 2014.  Bill will be discussing Terrapin’s work on biophilia and its benefits supported research in psychology and neuroscience.  He will share design strategies developed from this research.  Biophilic design, or connecting the built environment to the natural world, has been proven to increase productivity, mood, and healing for healthier lives and communities.  The conference features over 75 expert speakers, training events, networking opportunities and local project tours.

The Grey to Green Conference promotes the economics of green infrastructure and healthy design.  GRHC is a membership-based industry association that is working toward strengthening the green roofs and green walls industry in North America.  Terrapin’s findings on biophilia firmly support GRHC’s aim to increase awareness of the economic, social, and environmental benefits of living architecture.
