Architecture is a form of art whose concepts are influenced by the technology and social changes of the environment which is more than just built forms. These rapid changes lead to many futuristic trends in the field of Architecture.

Virtual reality

VR being the leading technology of the world is used vividly in the construction industry. Architects use VR to present the design concepts and understand the sense of space created in a yet-to-be-built structure. Spaces in VR are created with a help of computer graphics, wireless tracking technology, projectors, and more, to create a real-life interactive experience for clients who are skeptical about the initial design stage. Clients can now feel and visualise the designed spaces through virtual projects in real-time.


Collaboration

The efficiency of the project is much greater with different field specialists working together on a single project and having immediate insight into all vital information. Collaboration with multiple expertise has become a necessity to meet the needs of complex-integrated design and to have a better solution for the project. Smart Cities The design of Smart cities leads to minimal consumption of materials and resources on earth. With the growth of population and scarcity of natural resources, efficient usage of these limited goods becomes a more important factor to be considered in designing a city. Problems related to depleting renewable energy, transportation, advanced systems, more comprehensive access to health and public services are being addressed to develop a smart city that responds to massive changes in the world. Sustainability plays a major key role in the development of an urban smart city. Architectural Robots & 3D printers The biggest innovation and improvement in the field of architecture is the concept and usage of 3D printers. The usage of 3D printers on a large scale helps the architects to create amazing designs without being limited by the practical possibilities of the built.

Sustainability Sustainable architecture is one of the solutions for the rapid changes in the environment. Designers use sustainability as the main factor to work with the structure’s natural surroundings with locally available materials and minimum energy usage. The main idea behind this trend is to reduce physical wastage as well as energy loss for a better living environment. Integrated Spaces Another important technological trend of futuristic architecture is the growing demand for the Internet of Things. Inclusive spaces are integrated which are public and private to address the needs of the current generation. Evolving technologies make it possible to create large mixed-use developments into smart cities that offer a wide range of diversity of spaces that address a variety of urban issues.


Conclusion Innovations in the field of science and technology have no limitation. All these trends are becoming increasingly popular to the architectural projects with focus on the importance of green infrastructure and energy efficiency.
