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.
