The number of people living in urban areas has surpassed the number of people living in rural areas, but the range of each person’s residence is decreasing and the radius of each person’s life is shrinking. People are also completely ignorant about where their food comes from. Digitised images on a screen are one of the few ways that people in cities can learn about nature. （Beatley，2011）
In such a long history of building cities, urban development has ignored environmental factors that are vital to the full development of the human mind. Studies have shown that regular exposure to nature improves mental health, provides a sense of calm, and enhances quality of life.
In my case, I studied landscape architecture as part of my engineering studies, and I needed to identify some common plants, but before that I didn’t know anything about plants, either in the UK or where I come from, even the tree under my house.
For young people today, nature is universal and abstract, and we are severely disconnected from it. This is detrimental to our health and also contributes to a generation that has no concern for nature and a weakened connection with it. （Beatley，2011）
With this in mind, I learned about biophilic design.
Advantages of biophilic design
The need for nature in our lives is not optional, it is a necessity. This nature is not remote and primitive, but is scattered throughout our lives. The kind of nature that has the resilience and persistence in the face of urban pressures. This wildness does not mean that people need to stay away, but rather that their activities attract them. To use an analogy, when I was a child I loved watching ants move with my friends. （Beatley，2016）
Nature’s self-healing powers and healing benefits: stress reduction, alleviation of ADHD and various mental illness effects. Relieves the heat island effect moderating and reducing urban heat. Economic stimulation, a good ecological environment will increase the price of housing in that area. For example, New York City’s High County Park has stimulated new commercial and residential development. It can also manage stormwater and urban runoff in hot weather, provide shade and natural air conditioning, and even produce to drinking water and provide food. （Beatley，2011）
We visited our project site a while ago and also went to Manchester to see some of the great project sites. The best sites have a lot of animal activity and the animals attract people to the site. Our project site has a large green area. But it’s not serving nature and it’s not serving people, it’s just going out and being wasted. To strengthen the connection between people and nature.
