A closer look at Danish and Japanese nature-based interiors
There is something unique about post-war Danish and traditional Japanese buildings. Their interior spaces have a remarkable connection to nature. The EU-funded project Nature-In will study this connection to understand how to integrate nature in interior spaces. Specifically, the project will conduct a case study analysis to present the first synthetic overview. It will identify which devices are used in these cases to link their interiors with the surrounding nature. It will bring together architectural research and practice to provide a catalogue of potential sustainable practical devices and recommendations for integrating architectural devices of the buildings studied and society in building practice. The project’s overall goal is to boost the health of communities through daily interaction with nature in urban areas. The findings will open a new branch of architectural design and make a big impact on advancing EU knowledge on nature-based solutions.
