When was the last time you thought about how trends in architecture influence art buying decisions? The more you know about this industry the better. Why? Because there is a direct correlation between architectural design changes and the purchasing decisions made by corporate art buyers, private collectors, project managers, public art planners, and other major professionals. If you want to sell more of your artwork now and in the future, one way may be to keep abreast of the important influence of architectural design on the art market.
Architecture is an exciting field that responds to and reflects our dramatically changing environment and social development. As one of many examples, there is a growing trend in combining interior and exterior elements — bringing the outdoors inside. The lines are being blurred to the extent that we’re seeing office spaces popping up in parks where pods are wrapped around tree trucks.
There are other trends to be aware of. New materials, substrates, energy efficient green spaces and other environmental factors are playing a huge role. There is also a growing use of dynamic geometric patterns, texture, rhythm, and repetition in interiors. There are homes and buildings that change from day to night, embracing illumination as an architectural element, using LED and other lighting effects.
Multi-media is also making an impact. Today, there are many studies in which color and sound waves provide healing therapy. As a result, hospitals and other healthcare facilities and rehabilitation centers are integrating the technology of light and sound systems to provide awe-inspiring art experiences and maximize healing benefits.

In response to the need to understand more about the impact of architectural design, The Metropolitan Museum will host “In Our Time: A Year of Architecture in a Day”, an all-day symposium devoted to the most exciting and critical design projects of 2016. The event will be held on Saturday, November 12, at The Met Fifth Avenue. Architects, curators, theorists, photographers, and filmmakers will present on a range of international projects. Structured into three parts—Architecture on Display, Projects of the Year, and On the Horizon—the daylong program will construct a global view of contemporary architectural practice.
This program is free with Museum admission and seating is first come, first served. Space is limited and not guaranteed.
Keep in mind, these architectural design movements are taking place on a global scale. You’ll begin to notice more inventions within art and design as time progresses. So, explore the many possibilities in texture, color, and multi-media that you can integrate in your art!
