Contemporary architecture refers to the design of buildings and houses of the present time. It encompasses many different architectural styles including new urbanism, post-modernism, neoclassicism and futuristic architecture.

There are many famous landmarks across the world considered as outstanding examples of contemporary architecture. Some of the more well-known include the Sydney Opera House, the Gherkin in London and the National Grand Theater in Beijing.

It is the uniqueness of each of these buildings that makes them so memorable and excellent examples of contemporary architecture.

Contemporary Architecture for Living

Although it is individual landmarks that are best known as representing this period of architecture, architectural designs of homes are equally unique. Current architects work towards making living spaces that simplify the lives of those living in them with the use of modern technology.

The design of the interior is as important as the exterior of the house. The cost of building a house also has an impact on contemporary architectural design.

Materials are often chosen because of their low cost or because they will be quick and simple to build with, thus cutting overall building costs. Similarly, consideration is made of continuous expenses of those living in the house once built.

Green Living

Many contemporary architects consider the effects of the building on the environment when designing a home as this is a popular specification for those paying for the build.

Energy saving devices and the use of sustainable materials are are two ways that houses of contemporary architectural design limit the negative impacts of living on the environment.
