Architecture of the future is about high tech intelligent buildings revolutionising the urban landscape.
Modern skyscrapers are integrated and covered with vertical gardens and vegetation for filtering and capturing pollutants and CO2.
Advanced 3D printers will be available for each household/living unit for on demand and highly personalised manufacturing of furniture, domestic goods, technologies etc.
The buildings will be like living and breathing beings that are able to adjust their temperatures, moisture levels for optimal living conditions, are able to maintain and repair themselves and are able to internalise the creation of food, water and other resources for the inhabitants.

By 2070 there will be underground habitats with new micro-nations. Underground towers or "earthscrapers" (future-timeline) can reach hundreds of metres below the Earth's surface with self sufficient power generation and food and water production, recycling automation etc. New advanced materials and structural techniques will allow for highly secure, efficient and automated habitats.

Enormous floating islands in the oceans and undersea habitats. Homes will achieve full automation with energy generated by the habitat itself. Programmable matter will allow for morphing of facades in texture and appearance. Intelligent surfaces can reconfigure on demand.
Others will look to Space. Protective structures on Mars. A look into the built environment of our future homes.
Large scale arcologies. Mega Structures.

Condensing cities into one massive structure, covering several kilometres in radius, rising kilometres in height and holding millions of people.
Carbon nano-tubes carrying the magnitude of the forces. The immense size and strength ultimately makes these structures immune to any natural forces.
