Project type:

Technology is constantly changing around us. In fact, technology is a constant and we revolve around it. Therefore, our way of living will have to adapt to the cutting edge technology happening. Since design is a way of life, it will change too. Retail, work and leaning environment spaces are one of the daily spaces that humans interact in. These spaces will change depending on the need of the consumer. For example, retail spaces may not be as we know them today, big and spaces, they might shrink down into simple screens as applications are taking over all customer needs. Furthermore, furniture shops like IKEA could change the interior set up by using the Oculus. For example, instead of having one type of furniture set up,a customer could design their own set up and see it by using the oculus to have a feeling of how the furniture will look like. Working space will no longer be described as a cubical office, it will be just a simple open space where anyone can come and work with their laptops and it will have big screens for conferences. The working space should be a place with a green environment to provide the best set out for the employee. Psychology and architecture are connected with a bond. Any space design must trigger a good feeling for the consumer and provoke a good working environment which can bring higher productivity. Also, light is a big part of spatial design. It is important to provide an employee or a student with the right amount of light that will high their efficiency.
To fully capitalize on the benefits of active learning, physical space must support and enhance the pedagogies employed in the classroom. Institutions should consider how flexibility and variety work with pedagogy, technology and space to support how learning happens in active learning classrooms. The majority of classrooms in use today were built for traditional, “stand-and-deliver, sit-and-listen” pedagogies in a passive learning setting. Inflexible layouts and furniture with limited mobility hamper interaction among students, instructors and content; in fact, the environment is the barrier. Technology access is highly variable from classroom to classroom and often poorly integrated.
Furthermore, sound systems and lighting systems will become part of each space design. One can clap to turn off lights or maybe sing. The room temperature will be adjusted to the body temperature of the consumer automatically.
There will be a well-defined divide between designers in tech for the bespoke economy (i.e., at the scale of tens of users) versus designers in tech for the global economy (i.e., at the scale of millions of users). Designers for "fewer people" will deftly leverage technology that enables short-run advances like 3-D printing, as well as the many e-commerce front-end technologies that are now available. Designers for a "gazillion people" will deftly leverage technologies for evaluating their solutions at scale to test and retest their assumptions in large sample populations. They are at the bleeding edge where social science meets big data meets leading hundreds of designers, researchers, and engineers

What an amazing idea of putting the table into the tree and cut off from center to keep tree there. the arqu ideas always gives you best idea which is art of design ideas.


Looking at the designs rendition here, I am impressed with the sustainable exterior designs, they are really cool and perfect for any outdoor gatherings.. I am only using furnishings that came from, and their products are great materials to use for both indoor and outdoor. In fact I got this deep seating chair from them .
