Trends to watch out for in Architectural Industry

The field of architecture is one of the most creative fields. An architect needs to constantly create unique designs that not just look aesthetically brilliant but are even functional. People always expect extraordinary designs for their buildings and so they hire architects for the same. Furthermore, the trends in the industry keep on changing with people’s preferences. So, an architect must be abreast of these trends to create incredible designs. Here are the top trends in 2019 that will dominate the industry:

1. Renewable Energy

There are carbon emissions during the life cycle of a building. So, renewable energy can be adopted to combat these emissions. However, it is more important for architects to work on architectural models that generate new energy by exploiting renewable energy.

2. Robotics and Automation

The concept of smart cities is doing the rounds and now the modern-day customers expect smart homes that are integrated with technologies such as automation and robotics. So, the architects should create models that enhance the comfort level of the residents of the buildings.

3. Small scale home

Small houses are the new trend that is set to dominate 2019. Due to financial or ideological situations, it is the need of the hour to create functional spaces. So, the architects should adopt innovative solutions that transform the small spaces into functional spaces.

4. Recycling spaces

In this era, sustainable development has become crucial. Topics like ecological awareness and recycling are being talked about in the global sphere. So, the architects should adopt adaptive re-use projects to reduce the carbon footprints due to construction.

5. Use of local materials and focus on details

The local materials are finding their place in the industry as they are readily available, low in cost and are sustainable. The architects should also give preference to local techniques and materials which makes the project cost-effective and sustainable. Furthermore, proper detailing is also adopted by architects to create attractive designs.

So, these are the anticipated trends of 2019 in the architecture industry. Every architect and aspiring individuals must be aware of these trends in order to execute the projects successfully.
