Looking at their global markets, Gensler just published the 2014 Design Forecast. The PDF examines the trends affecting their clients’ businesses, with analysis of how these trends will intersect with business performance between now and 2025. The Lifestyle section beginning on page 26 examines hospitality, retail and mixed-use development.
The 2014 Design Forecast highlights six meta-trends that form a working agenda for how design will impact our clients’ success in the coming years. These meta-trends—which touch on workplace, wellness, technology, urbanization, globalization and development—will drive further proprietary research initiatives and guide our thinking in the years to come.
