Top 100 Architecture Trends in June

From Bamboo Performance Spaces to Protective Concrete Homes

— July 1, 2018 — Art & Design
Architecture comes in many different forms, as the June 2018 architecture trends show. It can be extravagant or it can be humble, florid or utilitarian, natural or synthetic; there are more dichotomies in architecture than any one person could ever explore. Looking at the June 2018 architecture trends as a whole, though, one can get an idea of the dramatic array that exists in the industry.

One of the most interesting comparisons between architecture is in the split between natural and synthetic, as mentioned above. At its core, architecture is about synthesizing a manmade environment, and many firms lean into that by making use of completely artificial materials. However, other firms look to try and disguise the human construction of architecture, using completely natural materials as much as possible.
