However, future thinking is never one-dimensional. In some places designers must consider shrinking household size and growing demand for easy access to public transport, work and urban leisure. In others, changing demographics are driving new demand for high-quality housing.
Worldwide, merging of information and technology with urban infrastructure is opening up new possibilities for connectivity and convenience in residential living. Globally architects and designers specialising in key markets are providing advanced housing solutions worldwide.
