Biophilia – longing for nature

The belief that nature has a serious positive impact on man is as old as civilization . How many people are fascinated by nature is witnessing and very early occurrence of gardens as central parts of residential areas. Namely, in ancient Egypt the nobility had luxurious gardens, and the inhabitants of the Persian settlements in Mesopotamia often surrounded the beautiful and sumptuous gardens. Over the past two centuries, the idea of ​​nature has become stronger as a powerful tool for reducing stress and, in general, for the psychological well-being. Most of the urban design projects have green spaces in the park so that even in the crowded urban environments there may still be small green oases. These ideas are the forerunners of the earliest hypotheses of biofilm.

What is Biofilm??

Defined as a love for everything that’s alive, which grows and evolves ; refers to the assumption that people have a tendency to connect with nature, and this implies that we have a genetic innate dose of love for plants and animals. The first European hospitals always had large parks as an essential supplement. It was considered that the natural environment had a positive effect on the human psyche and how it could help some patients in their healing or encourage them to think more positively. With the advancement of medicine, new ideas outperformed the old ones, and treatment methods have changed. Large cities and indoor environments are dominated by objects of massive and cold materials built by the human hand. The question is how much the accompanying exhaustion of natural resources negatively influenced the human mind and to what extent it was possible to mitigate this phenomenon.

A positive example is the Swiss cities in the Lake Geneva region that abound in green areas, which is due to a positive geographical location, which is due to the planned construction of which the main interest is the positive synergy of the man and the nature surrounding it. Although Switzerland has positive relief accommodation (the Alps, lakes) and in other countries, or cities, it is possible to achieve a similar effect by planting trees, maintaining parks and the like. On the other hand, in cities where no importance is attached to the planned construction and maintenance of green areas, heavy massive materials prevail (eg concrete). An example is the Yugoslav construction whose towns have a low percentage of parks, or green areas (lower picture).



In any case, research over the past years has undeniably demonstrated positive effects that staying in nature or adding natural elements, in the form of various plants and greenery in general to sterile enclosures, has on man. Adding natural elements to indoor spaces results in more positive emotions that can affect the level of stress, positive thinking and health in general.


Even a look at such photos creates a certain level of comfort and peace. Nature is truly magical. Starting from her plant and animal world to smells, sounds, flavors … Exotic attachment to nature is also reflected in the trends of more prosperous social strata. In the not too old past, wealthy social layers have largely settled overpopulated cities in search of better opportunities and greater success. Today, most decide to build their homes outside the center, in isolation, in the environment of nature and its benefits.
In addition to psychological factors, there is a conviction that human nature is an indisputable link between man and nature. More precisely, for this is a worthy evolution, since nature subconsciously associates us with physical activities and a quest for food. This latter was the main occupation of the human species for many years. A possible genetic predisposition to biofilm in humans is essentially based on biologically acquired behavior. More recently, biofilm focuses mainly on landscape architecture, floristry and the like. Since every person as an individual does not have the opportunity to greatly affect the natural appearance of the environment in which he resides, the only thing remaining is to arrange his own personal space according to his own preferences.
For this reason, there is an increasing number of people who want greenery in their homes and workplaces. One of the solutions is Tech Garden stabilized vertical gardens (moss, leaf, flowers, trees, etc.). In this way it is possible to create your little green oasis in your own home. Forest walls rich in various herbs, flat or polar moss, Icelandic lichen … All of these are green supplements that can make a real forest atmosphere in your home. In such an environment, the human brain functions better, the general psychological condition is improved, and the positive atmosphere comes spontaneously. After all, who would not want a real little oasis in his home, ideal for relaxing after a stressful stressful day.
