Architecture taking a high road

The future is closer than we might think. According to Hardik Pandit, Director, 3D Architecture, from bullet proof buildings to indoor landscaped architecture, Architecture is taking a high road to embody the methodology of tomorrow.

The contemporary projects are catering to the needs and desires of the posterity. In the spirit of architecture’s fortune telling abilities, some of the contemporary designs shed light on the future of our visual world and show the architecture of tomorrow.


Due to digitalization, technological advancements are occurring in every genre and technology is changing architecture. The world of computational design means architects are pursuing new frontiers where architecture can be generated through the writing of algorithms and software. An interactive physical mechanism can be built that responds to its environment, adapting and evolving as necessary.


In this era, where personal security has become a priority in all spheres, architects have come up with this fantabulous concept of designing and constructing bullet proof buildings. For the construction of such buildings, it inculcates elements like bullet-resistant glazing, bullet-resistant panels, bullet-resistant doors, and bullet-resistant accessories. Architects are looking forward to build bullet proof buildings by framing a standard stud wall. They then mount bullet resistant fiberglass panels on the studs, making sure to double-over all seams with additional strips of fiberglass. Finally, the contractor covers the fiberglass wall with drywall or paneling. The resulting bullet proof wall can be finished just like any conventional wall: painted, wallpapered, decorated with framed landscapes or advertising. It’ll stop bullets as well as can act as a bunker, but to any passers-by, it’s indistinguishable from a standard wall.

To avoid the risk of a prowler, architects have another colossal concept of ‘Censor Buildings’ on their anvil. Buildings instilling censor would have touch functionality which would ensure entry of only those individual who are the residents of that building. Any intruder trying to hamper this functionality would not only alarm the security officials but would also receive electric shock if attempt to disrupt the censor.


In a settlement, village or town, habits, patterns and culture become predominant. Architecture has the capacity to elevate man to higher levels or lower them. To plan a settlement is to plan the culture or civilization.

Mirrored Architecture

Resplendence is quite synonymous to ‘ Mirrored Architecture’, as it is beyond words to describe its belle and allure. The use of mirrors is a well-known interior design technique often employed in small rooms or apartments, as mirrors help provide the illusion of space. Mirrored design is no longer exclusive to indoor space, as mirrored architecture is bringing the reflections outside. Mirrored houses, cabins and art installations show just how other-worldly mirrors can be in architecture. It’s an enthralling trend that has garnered a plethora of appreciation.

Indoor Landscape

The interior spaces, be it urban or rural all reflect the sprit, needs, wants, habits and culture of people. Indoor landscape architecture in contemporary times is contributing to aesthetic value and subtle elements of serene and peaceful living. Beauty, character, detail, connection and resonance inculcates indoor landscape architecture. The architect aim is to create designs and patters that are effortless and stand the test of time.
