Kulthoum Shakhshir, BUiD’s alumna (MSc in Sustainable Design in the Built Environment) and Dr Wael Sheta, Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Engineering, published their research in a Q1 journal, the International Journal of Architectural Research (Archnet-IJAR).

In their research titled, The assessment of biophilic features in residential buildings: a case from Dubai, they explored the difference in occupants’ satisfaction with biophilic features in high-rises, townhouses, and villas in Dubai to identify new strategies that promote more human-nature connections. The study also serves as a benchmark for applying Biophilic Design in the Gulf region and bridging between biophilic theory and practice.
