How will the way we build change over the next 25 years? What changes in the way we live and work and in the environment around us will demand new types of materials and technologies? For 100% Detail The Building Centre asked a number of specialists in materials and technology to identify trends for the next 25 years. We have assembled our top ten Materials of Invention to show here. Each is in a different category and illustrates the overriding theme: new technologies which provide better performance with less impact on the environment.
