From Enchanting Fluid Architecture to Modern Hobbit Homes

From dirt wall abodes to pixelated panel interiors, the best architecture trends of 2012 showed a wide range of innovative designs.

2012 was also a year for homes inspired by pop culture. The Hobbit in particular was a popular theme leading up to the movie's release in December, resulting in architecture with a seemingly earthy feel. It appeared that consumers were open to new designs with this eco look, and some even welcomed homes made mostly out of dirt. Compared to some of the more modern chic abodes on the market, designs such as these proved the public were still willing to buy homes with a minimum amount of grandeur.

Trend Hunter's Architecture Trend Report explores the implications of these designs in much more detail, and can help businesses looking for ideas in this area.
