Harmonious Design

Consumers see lush surroundings incorporated into structural design

Implications - As environmental concerns continue to influence consumer spending, many designers and architects are blurring the line between natural and man-made in their work. Often serving the purpose of facilitating natural climate control systems or to combat pollution, such structures seek to inspire consumers to live in cooperation with the natural world rather than against it. Related to fears around climate change and the wellness movement, this progression highlights a growing awareness of the role people's surrounding's play in determining quality of life.
