Time & Space: Architectural Design Trends

Architecture may be all about space — the creation of spaces, the blending of the built environment with the natural environment — but it’s often about time, too. As Nevada’s architectural professionals look forward to the evolution of design trends in 2021, they see lots of indications that the dramatically changing times in which we find ourselves will shape the buildings in which we live our lives. From reimagined retail outlets and glittering resort casinos to offices that emphasize employee safety and workaday facilities for the Department of Motor Vehicles, effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the speeded-up transition to online shopping and online workplaces make themselves felt as architects meet with their clients.
Sustainability is likely to return to the forefront of architectural concerns even as the pandemic wanes. “Like anything else, the effects of any change play out once the human mind understands that there is a new norm. As architects, how we design is strongly influenced by current social, financial, and environmental concerns,” said Angela Bigotti-Chavez, a principal with Van Woert Bigotti Architects in Reno.
