In a forward-looking and advancing society, it is critical that we anticipate our needs of tomorrow.
With the needs of each individual dweller, the needs of the specific community and the needs of society as a whole – how do we envision the living of tomorrow? How would one as a visionary designer, craft the structure and space that would meet the needs of tomorrow. And how would the design be resilient through the years?
By “future proofing”, we can predict the way we live, work, play and interact with the environment in the coming years. Thus, it is paramount for designers to take into consideration and fully immerse themselves in the social, economic and environmental context of the future dwellers in its entirety.
Each time and space has its own wonders and great structures to capture moments from the conceptual stages envisioned by the designer. We also need to be cognisant that whilst creating purposeful ‘brick-and-mortar’ designs, we would always be reminded to incorporate and subsequently build the ‘heart-and-soul’ elements into the project intent.
Share with us your most compelling iteration of how designs and concepts are crafted for communities of tomorrow. A visualising exercise is required, to ensure that your signatory individualities are reflected in the eventual concept whilst you envisage the structure and facilities required for tomorrow’s mankind and living.
Design a piece of architectural marvel which is inspired by tomorrow’s living that will steam beyond space and the built environment. How would the inhabitants of tomorrow interact with your structure? Let your design solve issues of tomorrow faced by the inhabitants within a community space.

Green Innovation Practice
The design should include both passive design strategies and active systems (if applicable) that are cost-effective throughout the building’s lifespan, while requiring less maintenance, less resources, and fewer chemicals.
Design must be appropriate for their intended use and have a positive impact on the community.
Appropriate design and planning of individual spaces that suit their specific needs, emphasising on anthropometric and ergonomic principles.
Redefinition of Space
The design idea must be innovative and beneficial to the users and the public.
An innovative design that creates hope for a better tomorrow and becomes the ideal model for others to follow.
