5 Architecture Practices to Watch

5 Architecture Practices to Watch

While we may not have been allowed out, we have been allowed to self-reflect, evaluate our development, and think about how we as a global society want to grow. We need to be more sustainable, more aware, more conscious. And that starts with the buildings we live in.

Covid-19 and the Built Environment

Most of us have experienced at least one significant change to our everyday ‘normal’ as a result of the global pandemic. The world as we know it is changing - and while there is much uncertainty around what the near and distant future holds, one thing for certain is that there will be no returning to ‘normal’.

Almost every human being in the country, and on the planet, has been affected by the consequences of Covid-19. The long term economic effects of nationwide lockdowns and the closing of hospitality and entertainment industries over the past 18 months is yet to be seen.

Where Design Meets Tech

Furniture that combines digital technology has for a long time been a bit of a curiosity. If you grew up watching Star Trek, it’s the stuff of science fiction made real: tables with interactive menus built in, chairs that change their structure to suit your body shape and advertising that allows you to place items in your home using augmented reality...
