dc.description.abstractNature deficit disorder is a term used to describe an alienation from nature that is impacting urban youth. This alienation has been attributed to several factors including a growing dependence on digital media and television, combined with heightened parental concern about crime and safety. The main focus of this investigation is how the interior design of an elementary school can foster a connection to nature and inspire children to develop a long-term commitment to environmental sustainability. Specifically, bio-inspired and sustainable design is applied in a matrix of age-appropriate direct, indirect and symbolic experiences to create a closer connection to nature and to improve emotional, intellectual and spiritual well-being.en_US
