Sample Architecture Pro Trends

Each Architecture PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online architecture articles, videos and images. Examples:

Adult Playgrounds Play areas designed for grown-ups help to alleviate stress Implications - Who says jungle gyms are meant only for children? Adults need some playtime too. Designers are incorporating these grown-up jungle gyms into architecture and public spaces, offering the on-the-go consumer the opportunity to let loose and forget about everyday nuisances. Today’s consumer isn’t afraid to get in touch with his inner child, and with the fast-paced and hectic world in which we live, accessible adult-oriented playgrounds may be just what it takes to relieve stress.

Cottage Couture Cabin life conveys a toned-down opulence while emphasizing nature Implications - As cities increase more and more in population, the ability to get away from it all truly becomes a luxury. Once considered a vacation for those who couldn’t afford a trip overseas, cottages now serve as the ultimate nirvana. With the end of the recession, consumers make an attempt at being credit-savvy by showing off their money in a toned-down, eco-friendly manner.

Prefab 2.0 Homeowners opt for modular houses for a budget-friendly real estate alternative Implications - The rise of the caravan gave homes to a generation of nomads, and now their children are young adults. Instead of buying overpriced homes in a down market, consumers are mortgaging land and empty lots to buy modular homes--a 21st-century alternative to the "own your house, rent your land" ideal.

Artistic Selling Retailers apply art concepts to enhance customer experience Implications - More businesses are incorporating artful accents to their shops, realizing that customers are more likely to enter (and stay in) a store with artistic retail displays than one with basic white walls and grid-like shelves. Everything from oversized art installations to crafty storefronts are giving retailers attention-grabbing elements that are simply too eye-catching for a customer to ignore.

Modular Retail Fold-away stores allow retailers an easy way to move locations Implications - Over the past couple of years, pop-up stores have been allowing retailers to quickly test their products with convenience and efficiency in many different areas. Now, store designers are recognizing the importance of modular design when it comes to temporary -- and in some cases, permanent -- retail. Creating a modular physical store allows for it to be deconstructed and reconstructed quickly, which saves time when it comes to moving locations, and it also allows retailers to reuse materials, thereby saving costs.

Glamorized Desolation Tribute is being paid to dilapidated structures and locations Implications - Consumer culture has become more polarized, with emphasis placed on the run-down and less fortunate. In particular, artists are documenting images of abandonment by seeking out desolate locations, structures and people, insinuating a societal need to withdraw from material possessions, extravagant lifestyles and the shiny and new.

Ecopolitan Developments Emerging micro cities focused on eco initiatives Implications - In addition to revitalizing existing urban centers and residences with eco-friendly elements, nations are building niche cities specifically to meet ecological goals.

Nomadabodes Chic temporary housing for travelers and those in transition Implications - The recession has caused an influx of temporary housing options. The reasons for urban nomadism range from being in a stage of transition, such as living in a temporary abode instead of permanent downsizing, to a desire to pursue more travel opportunities with increased time away from work.

Niche Nightclubs Themed bars are appealing to consumers with specific interests Implications - The quest for personalization continues as customers look to themed bars and nightclubs where they can socialize in an atmosphere that resonates with their unique interests. Niche nightclubs that touch upon unique interests are able to grasp that extra bit of novelty and distinction to stand out in the highly competitive nightlife market.

Imposed Interaction Designers create workspaces that force collaboration and idea-sharing Implications - Research suggests that the more people in a work environment are forced to interact and converse, the more innovative ideas will be created. Studies in this area have concluded that knowledge transfer of any kind can stimulate people to think more creatively -- seemingly unrelated conversations can often lead to moments of insight. To this end, augmenting worker interaction is becoming a primary goal of workplace design as more brands begin welcoming these interaction-promoting areas instead of looking at them as places of unproductive socializing.

Urban Farming (UPDATE) Full-blown farm operations take over small urban gardens Implications - Cities are going one step further in the urban gardening game with full-scale farms that significantly reduce overall food costs and CO2 emissions from food transport. Once attributed only to individual eco-minded consumers, independent urban gardens have grown into full-fledged farm operations, incorporated by architects into towers and homes, businesses into their retail operations and city planners into neighborhoods and even alongside freeways.

Egyptianizing The ancient civilization becomes the epitome of exoticism Implications - Photography, art, design, fashion and architecture are all getting the Egyptian treatment, and consumers are looking to own a piece of the faraway land with Egypt-inspired products. Providing inspiration ranging from pyramids to the legendary female pharaoh, the Arabic country, for Western consumers, has become the epitome of exoticism.
