What do you think are the problems that architects will face in the future?
I wonder if any of those will be true problems in the future. Architecture will be built in place of old, crumbling structures. I think we'll see new, greener materials continue to be developed. And given the changing demands from the previous two, I think we'll continue to see new, creative ideas emerge from the new restrictions.
Lack of space is the major problem!
Today space between buildings is an indirect result of designing "beautiful" objects. Here we loose a lot of urban space that not describe squares, plazzas. Today cities are built along street coridors and all that space is no longer place for vehicle and human to harmonize. Vehicles need city highways and human need agoras, city squares.

Who asks those questions?
That is why we are architects: to solve the problems related to the lack of space, the lack of building materials and the lack of ideas!
Maybe it will be the lack of architects as the problems to solve are more and more complicated, the technologies are more and more, and the society base unit is more and more individualized. I think in the next few years a huge problem will be the lack of projects.
