Comfort & Sustainability in Architecture – Trends 2021

The effects of global warming are already being felt in our own homes.

In addition, many people have to take a lot of time to stay at home by Covid-19 pandemic.

There are more and more design concept trend that was not only focus life-space of people but also really the natural environment, nowadays. An architectural design that does not consider its repercussions on a local and global scale, and that does not adapt to a changing future, becomes unfeasible and a problem for subsequent generations

One of the main challenges for architects will be to design projects that can be naturally or artificially cooled in the most efficient way possible since cooling is much more difficult than heating

We have to change for big thing, and the design trend should be towards collaboration.

  • How do my individual decisions affect my immediate community, and beyond?
  • To what extent am I really aware of the behavior and effects of the spaces that I inhabit and design?
  • Is the lifestyle that I lead and that I am helping to create sustainable?
  • How should we inhabit the planet in the future?

Responsibilities of the architects will be important with a larger mission in the future:

The search for individual comfort must be aligned with collective efforts to combat the climate crisis
