Title: My Favorite Number is the Color Green: Implementing Green Walls in a Residential Setting to Improve Childhood Development
Authors: Gushiken, Tod
Advisor: Palagi, Kris
Issue Date: May 2012
Abstract: The modern world is characterized by human expansion, resource consumption, and
technological advances. Rampant development has created a rift in the human-nature
connection, a relationship once coveted during the earliest days of mankind. This kinship
must be reestablished to ensure a healthy lifestyle. Immersion in the natural world
provides the ideal environment for childrearing. Natural surroundings supply various
stimuli to serve as catalysts for educational theories and environmental psychology.
These benefits promote better childhood development and reinforce the principles of
biophilic design. One solution for rekindling the human-nature connection and
promoting a healthier lifestyle is through the implementation of green walls in a
residential setting.
