2
What Is Contemporary Architecture?
Contemporary architecture is based upon a
principle which says that it is shared by those
who practice it. Contemporary architecture is
innovative and it is not an architecture
movement, thus It does not have such
constraints. It means contemporary architecture
can offer a variety of architectural choices but
it has to stand out from what is normally done.
3
Forms Of Contemporary Architecture
Contemporary architectures are more often than
not distances itself from the curved lines. All
we can find by looking at the architecture is
that the dominant line is a straight line. In
some cases, though we can see a whole building
is constructed around curve lines or in some
cases one building is constructed around both the
curved and straight lines.
4
Volume Composition
  • In contemporary architecture, it is possible to
    create spaces other than cubes. If anyone sees
    any contemporary design, he/she can find out
    that most of the buildings are in rounded shape.
    Whenever a contemporary architect is looking to
    use straight lines that means the unit of volume
    will be a cube. The architecture will assemble
    these cubes in various surprising ways to create
    distinctive volume composition.

5
New Materials
Another distinctive feature of the contemporary
architecture is the use of new construction
material in both the interior and exterior.
Traditional materials such as wood, glass, brick,
and metals are there but some unconventional
materials such as plants may find a place in
contemporary architecture also. In contemporary
architecture, one can grow his/her own vertical
garden if she/he wants.
6
Eco-Housing
Eco housing is a concept which is not restricted
just to contemporary architecture. Even some
buildings built conventionally has incorporated
some pro-environment materials or at least they
are energy efficient. In contemporary
architecture use of eco-friendly materials are a
must. Materials such as photovoltaic cells,
geothermal heating, heat pumps etc are
considered during construction.
7
Animated Architecture
The term animated architecture is basically used
to describe another characteristic of
contemporary architecture that exists in various
forms. For example sophisticated lights,
projection on wall facades which can interact
with people or water in form of fountain or
waterfall. The basic idea is to make the building
come across as more alive.
