REVIEWS

I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation this morning. A whole new perspective on art, architecture, design, and airports which I had never considered. It was reassuring that so many of the points you made had a real resonance and although I had never heard of Biophilic Design it is certainly something that I will be looking out for. Sandy Angus, Chairman, Montgomery Group 

Natasha is a fountain of wisdom in an area that is of more importance than ever. Biophilic design is so much more than just ‘bringing the outside in”. It explores the innate need for a connection to nature that we as humans have and the information and enthusiasm Natasha brings is refreshing, enlightening, and energising. Couldn’t recommend her more! Xander Cadisch, PHOS: Architectural Lighting

The team loved your talk. Zachary Pulman, Zachary Pulman Design Studio
