As users of ArchDaily demonstrate certain affinities and greater interest in particular subjects, these topics emerge as trends. In recent years, the architecture and construction industry have incorporated digitalization into their processes. This has led to a considerable increase in the search for keywords related to "innovation" and "new technologies" within the infrastructure area.

Below, we've provided trends that relate to an emerging concept in the construction industry: "Constructech", how to take advantage of new technologies to optimize processes.

*YoY: Year-over-year growth rates that compare to the statistics of searches from 2017 to 2018.

Construction Sites (+378% YoY) are changing rapidly due to the implementation of new technologies that improve productivity and efficiency

The influence of BIM systems (+50% YoY), Modular Construction (+75% YoY) and Prefabrication (+99% YoY) allow for the realization of controlled, Off-Site processes (+200% YoY)

Meanwhile, 3D printing (+70% YoY), Automation (+118% YoY) and Artificial Intelligence (+234% YoY) can potentially signal a future where construction sites are free of human labor.

Previous ArchDaily Trends Reports:

Trends Report: Inclusive Design

As users of ArchDaily demonstrate certain affinities and greater interest in particular subjects, these topics emerged as trends. Inclusive Architecture was one of the most searched concepts on ArchDaily in 2018. Accessibility in our architectural designs is something that shouldn't have to be discussed.

Trends Report: Gender Equality

As users of ArchDaily demonstrate certain affinities and greater interest in particular subjects, these topics emerged as trends. Gender Equality is one of the trends that will influence urban and architectural discussion in 2019. Architecture is inextricably linked to the social and political contexts in which it resides.
