Futuristic Architecture Design
Futuristic architecture we will continue to evolve people change their behaviors, the way their cultures evolve. Some of the facilities that we’re going to have to design are going to have to adapt to how people operate. There’s a lot of factors that are going to affect our architecture in the future. Factors include climate change, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and cultures as they evolve. A cultural example is the millennials.
Factors will also include:
- What their needs are,
- How families interact,
- How companies operate,
- If they’re operating offsite, and
- Whether they need a facility to do their work.
There are so many things to consider when designing architecture for the future.
Factors of Futuristic Architecture
At the same time, we will always be learning from our past architecture and what worked and what did not work. Also, our ideas evolve quicker from knowledge from the Internet and the media. So the future will depend on some of the knowledge that we may gain. This is why it’s important to be able to keep in mind the historical knowledge in the design of our past facilities. Of course, we have technologies now that are going to be important on how we design facilities. Also, this includes everything from solar energy to natural daylighting to recycled materials. I mean a lot of this, we’re already doing today, but it’s going to continue to evolve at a much quicker pace.
With the advent of drones, we are going to be able to see flying cars much sooner. When I was a kid, we used to say, “We’re going to have flying cars by the year 2000.” Well, it didn’t quite happen. Here we are in 2019. Also, it’s more realistic now that people could have flying cars in the not too distant future. So these facilities that we design will need to consider a place for their air transport.
Domestic Considerations in the Future
Amazon is using drones to ship packages. There are other things to keep in mind as well. For example, how are people learning? Will they go to school? Also, will they work from home? Future homes may have a classroom environment for this reason.
So those considerations for designing futuristic architecture. What does it look like? You know, I wish I could have a magic ball to show you how this looks. But for now, we need to be able to concentrate on the needs more so than what it’s going to look like.
Some basic challenges are always going to be there in futuristic architecture. People will always have their own ideas. We will always have legal challenges. Also, we will always have to deal with building codes that are applicable. We’re always going to deal with safety. Also, we’re always going to deal with the lack of resources. And I’m not talking money, I’m talking things like water, for example. How to get rid of waste and how to bring in energy into these into our facilities. We’re always going to have the challenge of space. This means the room required for people to operate well in the facility.
The same design challenges will always be there. This means that we’re always going to have to be thinking outside the box to come up with solutions. They say that there’s no such thing as a problem, only opportunities. That’s how we architects like to see things through problems, as more opportunities.
Development One’s Experience in Futuristic Architecture
The experiences of NASA JPL, aviation, and aerospace have trained us to design for the future. Yet some challenges are not what a building will look like. It’s not what materials we need or how the facility operates. Some of the challenges come from a legal perspective. They also have to do with opinions. Also, they have to do with the media. Additionally, they have to do with challenges from building officials. These things are outside of the realm of design.
Futuristic architecture needs effective public relations to negotiate for new ideas. It needs all the parties involved to understand how your facility will operate. This requires effective communication. We will have financial challenges. These include things from taxes to fundraising to grants to donations and capital improvements. Finances are going to be critical.
A lot of challenges that occur are outside of the realm of design. Architects need effective communication skills to advocate our ideas from a design perspective. This also includes from a legal perspective. The spectrum is broad. That’s why today, our architects need to be well prepared in all those areas. Futuristic architecture not only needs good designers. Architects need to be well-rounded businessmen as well.
