Architecture and interior design tend to follow a fashion of sorts. Australia has seen prosperity over the past 30 years and the rise of the Mc Mansion along with it, now that we are heading into a world wide recession, what direction will residential design take. How will the design industry cope and reinvent itself to survive the next 3-10 years depending on the severity of the recession.
Will we see the rise of multi generational housing or homes designed for several unrelated occupants with common areas and well defined private spaces or will we re-interpret the mid century modern designs from an bye gone era where residential design was simpler and cheaper or perhaps technology will lead us out of recession and into the next construction revolution. I'd be interested in what people think. Where to from here?
