"The future: megatrends, paradigms and wildcards"
The future does not exist. It is hence hard to 'study'. You have to, however, try because decisions have to be made in the present but work in the future. This goes for buildings in particular. You can 'attack' the future in various ways. Short term trends can be important but only in the short term. When you are talking of architecture, a longer perspective is needed. Megatrends are the broad inertia rich trends that can be counted on to be around for the next ten to fifteen years. They are broad, verging on the banal, so you have to work with establishing the consequences for, in this case architecture. Once you have established through a megatrend mining the more foreseeable parts of the future you can start working with scenarios by starting to look at the overarching paradigms. What comes after hunter/gatherer society, agricultural society and industrial society? Some say we are living in the information society. We at CIFS say that we are living with four concurrent paradigms: the industrial, the Dream Society, The Creative Man and the Knowledge Paradigm, and you should also, as an architect, know which paradigm applies where. Finally, it can sometimes be fruitful to operate with wildcards: events that are extremely unlikely but full of consequences, should they be realized. If everybody can print their own house, what then?
Johan Peter Paludan, director emeritus, MA (pol.sc.), The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS) joined the Institute in 1976 and has been working there as a researcher, director of research, CEO and since January 2012 as associated partner. In the last ten years he has been heavily engaged in transmitting the results of CIFS through articles and presentations. The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS) was founded in 1970 by Thorkil Kristensen, former minister of finance and former director general of the OECD. CIFS is organized as a non-profit organization. It used to be focused on Denmark but has in the 21st century become more and more internationalized.
