Architecture is something that we always grow with as a part of our human life, like every other technology or thing in this world gets updated regularly like WhatsApp by adding something better and removing something that is not necessary to keep, futuristic architecture is a highly upgraded version of architecture to create an architecture not for the present but for the future.

The concept of futurism came to light in the early 19th century in Italy when a poet found it as a concept for the future, architecture very soon adapted the concept into its own style, and today we are witnessing the effect of the adaptation and Antonio Sant’elia and peter cook are some of the most famous futuristic architecture in the world.

Modern and futuristic architecture is almost similar but futuristic is just like out of the boundary, from elements used in the architecture to design concept everything seems highly advanced like quantum theories, current world architectures are highly engaged with futuristic building and believe that the world will be full of futuristic architectures in the near future.

Futuristic architecture is the concept of letting the generation build their own cities, letting them create what is best suitable for them that’s where the core philosophy of futuristic architecture lies in, to create sustainable buildings for the present and future rather than just adapting the past architectures and designs.

Highly creative design and usage of unusual materials are some of the common features of futuristic architecture, the Guggenheim museum is built with titanium which is an odd material in the world of architecture.

Architecture Philosophy

To build something that has less or no connection to the past or ancestral architecture, we are not eating foods that are thousand years old but why do we live in the style which found thousands and thousands of years ago? so they came up with the concept of futuristic to build for the current with a short span.

The usage of glass and steel was seen in modern architecture itself but making the same element in a very creative and unusual way is what futurism gave us, futuristic architecture lets the dream of architecture to go any extent until it matches the creativity, today we see a lot of buildings in the shape of fish or chocolate and much more, buildings like these were not possible before the birth of the futuristic architecture.

When it comes to materials used in the building though steel and glass are common, they used some other materials that are new to the entire architectural world like translucent concrete and bacteria building blocks, from bending concrete to aerogel they used every possible combination of materials to make it sustainable.

The design concept of futuristic architecture is one thing to amaze at with no proper principle because it lets the architects have their own principles in designing and construction without any pre manual, simply it gave the entire freedom to the architects.

Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa in Dubai is one of the most popular futuristic architecture and the highest skyscrapers in the world, who built something that is 829 meters high? that’s where the futurism lies for the craziest creativity and to make it possible one.

The concrete building is an example of making buildings that are adaptable and sustainable at the same time, Burj Khalifa probably saved more space in Dubai than any other building which is an additional benefit of futuristic architecture.

Shanghai Tower, the theme building in Los Angeles, and the Crystal in London are some of the famous futuristic architectural buildings in the world.

“Why not stay with the old methods and styles when we can create our own with our own creativity and freedom.”
