Top 100 Architecture Trends in March

From Inflatable Flower Pavilions to Minimalist Glass Homes

— March 24, 2018 — Art & Design
It wouldn't be difficult to argue that architecture is the professional practice that has the largest bearing on any person's daily life, which makes the March 2018 architecture trends just as important as they are interesting. From our houses to our offices to everywhere else the average person goes, architecture guides and permeates the way in which people operate.

Houses are surely what people feel most strongly about in the world of architecture, if only because one's house is where they are likely to spend the majority of their time. Perhaps one of the most interesting and daring houses among the March 2018 architecture trends is a home in Catalonia that opens itself completely to the outdoors. It has glass walls that can be rolled back by the occupants, but those walls are meant to be left open as much as possible, keeping the residents in touch with the natural world.
