Top 100 Modern Trends in November

From Curated Design Shops to Twisted Nordic Museums

— November 28, 2015 — Art & Design
The top November 2015 modern trends showcases a variety of contemporary design innovations in design and architecture with examples manifested in new product and service offerings.

The London Battersea Power Station development project has announced plans that will include a luxury hotel with a sprawling infinity pool. The majestic pool will join the impressive selection of London swimming options, like a series of public harbor baths recently announced as well.

Separately, Díaz & Díaz Arquitectos recently designed a stunning multi-level parking lot in A Coruña, Spain that proves function does not require abandoning fashion. The colorful car park features rainbow-inspired slats that bring the structure to life.
