The Biophilic Map is a databank for case studies which have implemented Biophilic Design at the core of their design process. Biophilic Design is known for its effects of indoor environmental quality and therefore on building users wellbeing.   The map recognizes exemplary projects in articulating and applying Biophilic Design principles to the built environment. The Biophilic Map is hosted by the International Living Future Institute’s Biophilic Design Initiative.

Children are spending more and more time inside buildings and the indoor air quality can affect their health. In fact, air pollution has been linked to serious health conditions, such as cancer, asthma and cardiovascular diseases.   The indoor air quality changes according to the building, the occupants, and the type of activities taking place inside. The main way people are exposed is by inhaling pollutants, but they can also be ingested or absorbed through the skin. This set of complex factors include:
