The Experiential Design Debrief

PSFK researchers partnered with Architizer to launch this report to provide an overview of future trends in architecture, as well as the societal forces moving them forward drawn from an analysis of Architizer’s global library of innovative designs and PSFK’s expertise in industries like travel, retail, and home living.

The themes highlighted within Experiential Design Debrief can be used to inspire the cities of tomorrow, but the trends can be leveraged to build the next generation of products, services and experiences.
