In September 2015, the New York-based data research lab and future resource hub, PSFK, partnered with Architizer on a report called Building Tomorrow: Trends Driving The Future of Design.

.

They took 1,500 entries from Architizer’s A+ Awards, and sought the help of leading architects, designers, academics, psychologists, and entrepreneurs to described how the built environment was evolving.

.

What they found was that the three main drivers for change in architecture and design were connected lifestyles, an empowered citizenry and an urbanized population. They also outlined 9 trends building tomorrow, giving examples from around the world. Those drivers were outlined as 9 trends building tomorrow: communal spirit, intentional play, fluid states, hidden escapes, blended landscapes, exercised restraint, second life, passively powered and breakthrough builds.

.

I encourage you to read the free report from PSFK here. It would be good to see if these same 9 trends, and most importantly insights, apply to architecture in Canada?

For now, you can read my full article about PSFK here.
