The Earth wobbles toward its vernal equinox, the days grow longer, brighter, the north winds subside, and the sleeping earth awakens with the first green shoots of spring. As the world returns from its winter slumber, so our human connection to nature reawakens as well.
There’s a word for it: “biophilia,” popularized by American biologist, naturalist, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward O. Wilson. In his eponymous 1984 book, Wilson proposed that “our natural affinity for life—biophilia—is the very essence of our humanity and binds us to all other living species.”
Herewith, in honor of the first day of spring, March 20, Luxury Defined presents a collection of properties designed to reestablish the dialogue between our built environment and the natural world.
