“Architecture is the very mirror of life. You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society.” – I M Pei

Architects are bold artists. They are visionaries who can see the future. They can predict how people will live and how the world would transform in the future yet to be. Good architects create buildings, great architects set architectural trends . They are capable of envisioning unique construction and innovative architecture which leaves people amazed and is useful at the same time.

BluEntCAD with its 20 years of experience as a progressive Canada based architectural firm , is always inquisitive about building design trends . With real estate focusing on sustainable architecture and creation of buildings which serve multifarious purposes, we decided to spotlight some of the decade defining architectural feats.

Building design trends

Behold, we unleash the future of tomorrow!

    • Sustainable Architecture It is vastly believed that uninterrupted construction is damaging mother nature; depleting natural resources faster than they can be replenished. For years, construction companies have been on the radar of environmentalists, facing their concerned wrath. Which is why architectural firms are coming up with sustainable architecture.
      Here are some of them:

        • Green Sustainable Power Plants
          Power plants are probably the worst specimen of modern day architecture. They are outdated, drab and no less than eyesores. Besides, they are essentially monsters in brick and concrete; using up so many resources.
          The architecture experts of today are attempting to give these sprawling facilities a green makeover. The idea is to cover the facilities with corrugated creepers. The purpose is two-fold. One, the structures would be aesthetically softening the plant premises and two, the sheath of creepers would absorb carbon dioxide emissions. The effort aims to resolve the conflict between man-made environment and natural ecology.Photorealistic Image

       

        • Towers with Bio-Designs
          Another idea towards making constructively sustainable is the concept of compostable towers. These will be temporary structures built out of organic materials entirely. The construction would be done with organic bricks made of corn stalks and living root structures. The structure has been conceptualized by The Living and is named as Hy-Fi. It was the winner of Young Architect’s Program – 15th Edition.Towers with bio designs

          According to the creationists, Hy-Fi is the first structure of its kind which will have near-zero carbon emissions, featuring a total compostable design. Hy-Fi reinvents the most basic component of architecture, brick into a futuristic material and catalyst for creating endless design possibilities.

       

      • Catastrophe Proof Forts
        Artist Dionisio Gonzalez, in his series Dauphin Island, has mixed artistry with engineering, urban planning and architecture. The outcome of his innovative, out-of-the-box approach were peculiar edifices which would be safeguarding residents in disaster-prone regions facing perpetual hurricanes and tornadoes.Catastrophe Proof Forts

        While these blueprints are not a reality as of now, they certainly present an interesting approach to futuristic beach residences.

 

    • Advanced Recreational Facilities
      Although everyone needs concert spaces and parks, modern day construction is focused more towards residential, commercial and industrial spaces. There is also a need to maintain a semblance of agricultural lands and preserving forest areas. All of this leaves little or no place for developing recreational spaces. Which is why, architectural geniuses have come up with the idea of inflatable concert halls, indoor parks and floating pools.

        • Inflatable Concert Parks
          The Ark Nova is world’s first inflatable concert hall. It has been designed by British Sculptor Anish Kapoor and Japanese Architect Arata Isozaki. The concert hall is designed for touring tsunami and earthquake hit regions of Japan. The structure appears like a giant, purple bean externally and is colored and glowy internally and has defined spaces for music and community.Inflatable Concert Parks Japanese Architect

       

        • Indoor Parks
          Indoor Parks are based on the theory of “Wile Urbanism” which entwines a natural and man-made cohabitate for creating a hybrid public landscape.
          The first park has been proposed in Moscow. This park, named Zaryadye Park, will feature four landscapes wetland, tundra, steppe and forest. The park will function with a controlled wind, regulated temperatures and simulated daylight for Russia’s extreme winters.

       

      • Floating Pools
        This quirky design has been proposed by Family and PlayLab. The project features a 164 feet long floating pool in the river waters of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
        The +POOL intends to provide guests with over 600,000 gallons of clean, filtered water. The pool is designed as a Four in one solution of a Kid’s pool, Sport’s Pool, Lounge Pool and Lap Pool. The pool filters river water inside by filtering out contaminants, odors and bacteria; leaving out safe and swimmable water.

 

  • Massive Iconic Structures While rotating buildings are quite common, the world is yet to witness the true potential of architecture. Thanks to today’s technology, Hypnotic Bridges, Invisible Architecture and 3D Printed interiors are a reality today.
      • Hypnotic Bridges Why go for boring flat suspension bridges or duplicate Golden Gate Bridge when you can create which arch and curve their way across rivers?Hypnotic Bridges

        The Hypnotic Bridge, built for pedestrians over Dragon King Harbour River, China is the brainchild of NEXT architects. The bridge design encompasses three individual lanes hovering over Changsha Landscape to create a mesmerizing architectural feat.

     

      • Invisible Architecture
        Invisible Architecture is not a thing of science fiction anymore. It is a reality today as with South Korea’s high-tech LED system.
        Basically, invisible architecture is achieved by minimizing the appearance of the construction object. Invisible architecture creates an illusion of the structure not being there. The style is used when architects want to accentuate natural light or other features surrounding the building. Invisible architecture designs incorporate several mirrored glasses or simple, see-through glass.

     

    • 3D Printed Interiors
      The future of interior design is 3D Printing . Although 3D Printing emerged three decades ago, its vast potential on home décor and interiors is being recognized just now. The process of printing 3D interior designs is simple. You create a 3-dimensional design on your system and send it to a printer which uses designer’s selected materials for building an object. The whole process is pretty inexpensive and real estate gurus expect it to democratize interior design.

At BluEntCAD, we are always enthusiastic about what’s cooking in the world of architecture. We also believe that without the right 3D renders , construction documents and 3D models , achieving great structural feats is impossible.

Do you have a unique construction idea? Do you think your building design will stand out? Then we can help with high-quality 3D renderings and architectural construction documents . Get in touch to discuss your idea with us.
