By: Ar. Khozema Chitalwala, Designers Group

What kind of changes in the design of facades and fenestrations do you foresee for the future, say by 2050?

Facade design is expected to undergo a transformative shift towards the trend of adaptability and iconic aesthetics. Prefabricated metal perforated exteriors will gain traction, allowing for intricate detailing & varied textures. The emphasis will be on achieving harmony between form & function, resulting in facades that intelligently respond to environmental nuances. Digital interfaces will play a vital role, seamlessly blending technology with design to offer interactive & customizable exteriors. Exteriors with iconic looks will continue to be a focal point, with architects harnessing innovative materials and forms to create visually striking facades that make a lasting impact.

The future of facades and fenestrations depends on incorporating intelligent technologies that enhance user experience and environmental performance. We envision smart systems that dynamically respond to weather conditions, optimizing natural light, ventilation, and energy efficiency. Augmented reality integration will revolutionize user interaction with facades, allowing for customizable visual experiences. Further, advancements in material science could lead to self-cleaning and self-healing surfaces, reducing maintenance demands. Ultimately, by 2050, we hope to witness the seamless integration of cutting-edge technology into facades, elevating both form and function in architectural design.
