Contemporary architecture is not characterised by a particular style. Architects experiment with deconstruction of space and form, and with the simplicity and functional space as an idiom reminiscent of Modernism.

The focus on energy, climate and environment is paramount, and sustainability is a prime motivator for the choice of materials. New technologies using solar cells and glazing that contributes positively to the balance of expended and absorbed energy also play an important role in window design, as well as the requirements for a good indoor climate and access to sunlight.
