With the economy and social lives increasingly virtual, housing remains one of the few physical barometers of just how the convergence of multiple future trends will impact our personal lives.  Environmental, technological, social and financial trends, not to mention political positions, will all shape and reflect the future of the home – both externally and internally. It is also a key international issue. Between 2011 and 2050, the world population is expected to increase by 2.3 billion, passing from 7.0 billion to 9.3 billion.

 
At the same time, the population living in urban areas is projected to gain by 2.6 billion, passing from 3.6 billion in 2011 to 6.3 billion 2050. Simultaneously the processes of work and education are undergoing various processes that ultimately enable them to be more footloose. The same technological processes are enabling the home to become a pseudo-environment for what would once have been considered specialist spaces, such as a doctor’s waiting room or even a hospital bed. A range of changes to the form and function of the home looks set to take place, in part because of the growing environmental and associated economic cost of inertia, but also thanks to the possibilities evident in an increasingly connected society and built environment.

The equivalent innovative procedures are empowering the home to wind up a pseudo-situation for what might once have been viewed as master spaces, for example, a specialist's holding up room or even a healing facility bed.https://www.assignmentprofs.co.uk/
