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.
