LOS ANGELES—Construction costs and labor costs are continuing to rise, and this year, architects expect those inflated costs to play a big role in the design choices and decisions. We sat down with Glenn Rescalvo, a partner at Handel Architects, recently to talk about the design and architectural trends in 2017, and the economy was the first thought on his mind. We also discussed the focus on millennials and the evolution of design over this long cycle. Here, Rescalvo gives us a comprehensive look at what to expect this year in design.
