Future of Architecture – Taller, Self-Sufficient, Mobile Buildings
In the future, urban areas will have severe space limitations as populations increase, and buildings will have no choice but to go up, rather than out. The sky will literally be the limit for buildings, which will not only be taller but also flexible and hold many purposes, such as water collection and purification and will be self-sufficient with green power. These buildings may contain microcosms of entire cities, with housing, office space, grocery stores, etc. Look out Empire State Building!
