I couldn't agree with you more.I've had the first hand experience of working in a studio environment like this and I can re-assure you, spaces with plants in them, especially the specific ones mentioned in the talk has life, joy and a freshness in them. Having plants also connect to bringing in light/determining cross ventilation. These factors contribute to healthy atmospheres inside workspaces.
At least one must be able to look out of their window into a green space after much monitor viewing.
