The October 2018 architecture trends highlight the industry's focus on modular dwellings, prefabricated homes, and eco-friendly material use. One of the most exuberant examples of this is Grimshaw's 'The Peak.' This architectural development is both affordable and sustainable. Its prefabricated structure is made to specifically address the housing crisis and youth homelessness. In the Netherlands, Overtreders W and The Food Line Up look into life in 2050 through a zero-waste barn restaurant. In New York, on the other hand, local firm SHoP Architects are building the world's skinniest tower. At 43 feet width, the supertall structure is envisioned to reach 1,421 feet in height.
It is evident that the October 2018 architecture trends present a good mix of sustainability-focused initiatives, proactive developments in the crisis sector and entertaining record-breaking structures.
