Interior planting has become increasingly popular in the working environment during the last 30 years, and its presence is believed to have psychological and physiological benefits. There are many claims in the literature that have not been substantiated by research. My thesis, titled Human Responses to Interior Planting, set out to establish why people need or want to have interior planting in their present-day buildings and to determine the possible psychological benefits to people of plants inside buildings.

The Netherlands has a workforce of about 6 million people. More than a third work in offices, mostly eight hours a day, five days a week. For many, this means that the work environment can have a major influence on their health and well-being. 50,000 office buildings, covering an approximate total of 40 million square metres, also have a considerable environmental impact, not only while under construction (building waste, use of resources and materials), but also in use (consumption of fossil fuels and water, generation of waste), and, in all likelihood, during demolition or reuse as well!
