BSRIA spots megatrends for the future
BSRIA has produced another publication in its series which looks at megatrends affecting the global economy, and a particular view on what they mean for buildings. In its latest report, Megatrends: Demographics, author Henry Lawson looks at the growth and movement of the Earth’s population. Trends considered include numbers of people living alone; urbanisation; the impact of an ageing workforce and the growing number of women entering the workforce around the world. It is a fascinating look at an important topic which is already having an impact on how buildings are designed, built and used.
