We stumbled upon an interesting infographic developed by the team at Alan Mascord Design Associates Inc. The chart below (discovered on Houseplans.co) presents some of the trends of home sizes in America. According to the data gathered, a changing economic climate and a growing concern for sustainability led to people buying smaller houses in the US in the past five years.

This decline in house size was also caused by growth of single person households and the overall need to reduce energy costs. In addition, the infographic includes house plans, predicting what US homes will look like in 2015. Builders anticipate the average American home size will continue to decrease in the following years. Opposite to this trend, family rooms will likely increase floor space. Other popular movements concerning the American home development include more green features, a larger interest towards technology and more outdoor living space.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
