Many of the August 2015 architecture trends point to a changing understanding of the way we interact with the structures we use everyday. From innovative buildings that incorporate living plant walls to donut-shaped mega-stadiums that house luxury hotels and museums, there are plenty of awe-inspiring projects that represent the shifting of a culture toward one that prioritizes impact on the surrounding economy and the well-being of individuals.
A popular innovation is the incorporation of exterior plant walls that provide a literal breath of fresh air to condo residents, who will be especially grateful for the lessened effects of urban pollution.
Additionally, dramatic, over-the-top facades can often blend fashion and function, as is the case with the exterior steel cut-out seen on a new campus building at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense.
