Research in the area of environmental psychology indicates that cognitive attention processes can be restored through natural environment scenes. This area of research is now extending to explorations of attention restoration through biophilic design components in built environments. This talk draws on Singapore as a case study of a high-density urban area that retains components of biophilic design, which links to Edward O. Wilson’s biophilia hypothesis, that humans have an “innate tendency to focus on life and life-like processes”. We recently explored perceptions of attention restorativeness in a range of biophilic built environments in Singapore.
