Description:

The project examines the benefits of nature as part of the workplace for creativity. Previous research has shown that access to nature has diverse health, cognitive and social benefits. It is argued that access to nature has a positive effect on creative output depending on the extent to which elements of nature such as plants or colour green are part of office environment. Three quasi-experiments are used to examine if there is a significant difference in the impact of plants and colour green on visual thinking and divergent thinking. The results will shed light on how creativity can be enhanced by relatively inexpensive measures. They also add to the growing literature on the importance of the natural environment for performance, motivation and innovation.

Keywords/subjects not otherwise listed: Nature, plants, colour green, biophilia, office design, creativity, visual thinking, divergent thinking
