This one is relatively new yet we also have expected before; contemporary architecture. If you ever saw a building with its outdoor look seem like pretty rare and you wonder whether that building is a residence or a commercial, the answer actually could be the two of it, but both of them are within what many so called now as contemporary design. To make it relatively cleared, do not be in confusion between contemporary and modern design.
Some say that contemporary architecture is one part of modern design, while the others believe that contemporary design is the modern design itself. It can be simply said that contemporary and modern are always associates, just like traditional and classic always are. If you search for what the world of contemporary and modern means in some of that master dictionary, you will find the exact same meaning there: happening. The words of modern even associated with the contemporary meaning. Thus, in architectural matters, contemporary always relates with modern.
Many years ago, people believed that houses are a symbol of the wealth. The more you get rich, then the bigger and the more luxurious your house should be. It does not only the matters of the space one have in their living space, but also about all the stuff surrounding it. In classic or traditional design of residences we found long ago, we see big sculptures and statues at the gate to enter the house, and the bigger the outdoor statue you have the more pride you get. We also see people built houses where some of if it is not all the ornaments and decorative ideas exist in a way that somehow a little bit too much. Curves and reliefs in the wall and façade, windows full with ornaments and sophisticated interior. In contemporary architecture, we will lesser find something like this. Here, everything is about simplicity.
Many factors why more and more people seem to embrace contemporary architecture these days. It is about time and money; but let just call it efficiency. First, modern society with modern lifestyle nowadays has no enough time to pay the concern as much as it actually needs to those sophisticated ornaments, sculptures and decorative art that require much time in cleaning and maintaining.
Even if they are able to hire service for cleaning and maintaining their big house together with its all sophisticated stuffs, why they have too if by embracing contemporary design they can live more and clean less? Second, it is surely about the money. Anything in contemporary designs knows how to save money and costs. You will find the exact answer if you may get the differences between maintaining modern homes and traditional homes.
We love traditional and classic design that brings us to old ages nuances. But, if you wish to live your life more about having no enough time to check every corner and sculpture, let these designs stay in your ideas. You know that contemporary architecture is the one most right for you.
