How will Architecture Change Everything for the Future?
You will come across certain nostalgia for similar architectural styles, but they have not become the standard for housing today (although we do still have 50 years to go). So when you see really unusual building designs and concepts that claim to be the future of architecture, you should be wondering precisely how probable it is that us ‘regular people’ will be dwelling in some of those kinds of houses and buildings.
The future of architecture seems to have two main points: the sleek, high-tech look and sustainable design. At first glimpse, these two guidelines may seem to be correspondingly exclusive. For some people, green living raises up visions of existing close to the Earth, households built out of straw by their owners, with rain barrels to water organic gardens and turbines to harness wind power.
On the other hand, a high-tech home brings to mind geeks who are big into electronics. The truth is that the future of architecture incorporates both types of elements: the simple, modern, sleek aesthetic and the ecologically friendly, money-saving realism. And while homes will probably always have the same rudimentary features such as: a kitchen, windows, a roof, a bathroom, a room with a couch and TV in it, the future of architecture has the power to change the way that we live; for the better.
Types of architecture can make a big difference; this is the bottom line here. One way is the super-tall building; not just a skyscraper, or high-rise as we think of them from what we have seen, but 30 stories high or even more. It is actual vertical living. We have already seen a trend toward more mixed-use groups, in other terms, shopping, playing, living and working all in one area, with favourable results. The super-tall building trend takes this to the next level, since the sky is factually the limit.
Realistically, the Earth is running out of room and resources. At least in the places where many of us want to live, meaning the cities. In large cities, this means that people who have the funds for it often pay big amounts of cash for small spaces, while people who live in the suburbs and work in the cities spend time, petrol and money travelling to their jobs.
