Urbano Build is one of Urbano's most vibrant business communities with its own programme of regular networking events aimed at architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers and other professionals associated with the built environment sector to make connections, share information, explore new ideas, and find business opportunities.

This event will examine how biophilia - an innate affinity of life and living systems - is being used in architectural design and construction for the the benefit of all living things, and to create healthier human workplaces and residences.

Presenting this session, which will examine newly opened The Spine building, will be  Robert Hopkins, Regional Director of AHR, the award-winning architecture and building consultancy practice - and Urbano Network members.

Robert is design/project lead on The Spine, the new northern home for the Royal College of Physicians in Liverpool, which aims to be one of the healthiest workplace environments in the world when it opens its doors in May 2021.

Biophilia is at the heart of AHR's approach to the design of The Spine and the building has been designed adhering to WELL Standard principles.

Robert will be discussing how biophilia and other innvovations around workplace wellness and design have informed The Spine's design and construction.
