One is see­ing mod­ern de­sign with the ad­di­tion of sus­tain­abil­ity.

The de­sign in­flu­ence started pri­mar­ily with the mod­ernism cur­rent that swayed the world. Pre­dom­i­nantly one is still see­ing the in­flu­ence of mod­ern de­sign with the aware­ness and ad­di­tion of sus­tain­abil­ity in the de­sign. One is con­scious about use of ma­te­rial and mat­ter and the need to pre­serve the past or her­itage is also given due con­sid­er­a­tion.

Soft­ware is an aid to cre­ate unique ide­olo­gies and analo­gies.

Tools to de­sign and draw the unimag­in­able curves and pro­files are made more achiev­able through soft­ware. One is also see­ing the rapid use of soft­ware to cre­ate unique ide­olo­gies and analo­gies. In a vast pro­fes­sion of ours where the mas­ter ar­chi­tect is the brain to con­cep­tu­al­ize, de­sign, and also de­sign the im­ple­men­ta­tion process - soft­ware is an aid to ex­pe­dite the process and make pos­si­ble com­mu­ni­ca­tion of ideas to oth­ers, which would oth­er­wise re­main in the back­burner.

Choice of ma­te­rial as a whim or fancy will elude sen­si­tiv­ity to de­sign.

When se­lect­ing tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als like brick, stone, bam­boo, mud, and tim­ber or the mod­ern glass, steel, and com­pos­ite ma­te­ri­als, it is the lo­ca­tion of site - con­text, func­tion of space, ease of avail­abil­ity, re­quire­ments and other as­pects that will make the choice of ma­te­rial more valid and ap­pro­pri­ate. A cur­rent mar­ket chal­lenge is to han­dle the ur­ban in­fra­struc­ture which is un­able to match the rapid devel­op­ment needs. Also, nat­u­ral re­sources like good air qual­ity, wa­ter for con­sump­tion and us­age should be top pri­or­i­ties for habi­ta­tion. Con­struc­tion tech­niques like Pre­cast, PEB, Dry­wall, etc that aid con­struc­tion speed for large scale housing de­vel­op­ments, will be­come more ef­fi­cient and cost-sav­ing as tech­nol­ogy pro­gresses.
