Some kind or "organic" style? Flowing, tilted, curved, turned surfaces.

Like Bionic towers, Torre Agbar in Barcelona.
Sometimes this appears on surfaces of regular towers:
Aqua in Chikago:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=328545
And simpler funnel shaped forms like Doha sport city tower:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=357024
or countless turned highrises planned almost anywhere in the world, f.e. in Kuwait:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=373199

For most part those curved and "organic" buildings are very expensive and complicated to build, they often appear in proposals but most often are not realised. This could be the main reason why such style is not that popular.

deconstructivism, gerhy, zaha hadid, they have been old generation for years now. Nobody really cares about what they are building anymore. Even Koolhaas and Herzog & de Meuron - the real stars of the deconstructivst generation - fail to make impact lately.

Everybody is tired of the postmodern rococo, to be short. What used to be a very strong movement conceptually now is pure boring formalism. If you've seen the last World Expo you know you've seen the last wave of deconstructivism rolling back, and you've seen exactly why it is over.

The new stars are in several directions. SANAA's hyperminimalism has made them the last Pritzker prize winner. Peter Zumtor's supermaterialism has hade him the previous. David Chipperfield's blend between minimalism, materialism and classical proportions no doubt will make him the next.

Unspectacular architecture. Though it is still very unsure where it's going.

green architecture - eco materials, stuff that looks like it was made in a fairy tale.

Or Lo-Fi, stuff that looked like it was made in a disaster aid relief camp (/favela chic).

However all these "directions" were present at the same time and for each of them you can find an earlier example in the seventies, when pluralism "officially" started, or even in the fifties, during the "crisis" (Zumthor sometimes strongly reminds me the Fosse Ardeatine memorial in Rome by Mario Fiorentino).
Anyway it's from the the XIX century that we don't have a shared style, a style that represents an era and is accepted by the whole society. Since then we started to have a real globalized world and a plural society where the educated population was more numerous and more diversified.
Like to say: after Hegel, the monolithic prussian state and the perfect architectures of Schinkel, the beautiful chaos.

the other thing is a break away from any kind of 'international' style, and the resurgence of native ones, a bit like the 80s pomo era, but instead of borrowing from art deco etc, borrowing from local vernaculars. This would mirror the way global culture is heading too, as much of the world progressively gets richer, more powerful, more confident, and less likely to ape one another. It would be the re-establishment of nationality. This is already being seen in China, Middle East, Russia and India.

Why are all these "styles" decided in Europe anyway? I hope we see the reverse happening in the future.

Transparency would be another style, where office buildings - governmental buildings are glasses but very see through glass.

There has not been one relatively dominant style since modernism, one could argue. But this makes the postmodern era far from 'fully pluiform'. The architectural world has very strong 'fashions' - which theories are read, which subjects are focussed on, architectural methods, materials, tricks etc. These elements can go back two or three generations (or be pre-modern or classical). But despite the pluiformity there are very distinctive architectural generations - 60's rationalism, 70's humanism, 80's - 90's for the Netherlands are about conceptualism, and a new radicalism, the return of the (deformed) building block and idea of experience architecture - making architecture like a script, the 00's strangely enough seem to have been about formalism (the return of the ornament, no longer with the conceptualism to form an 'excuse' plus the fascination for advanced formalism).

Of course this is just one layer, by naming some random dominant characteristics I choose to ignore numerous equally valid characteristics - things like these are always a lie to some extend, in many aspects. And these generations now have increasingly two or more radically different faces at the same time - for different target groups one could say. As is the situation with music (and has always been)

But in the pluiformity there are strong dominances. Looking at graduation projects now, they are radically different than the ones 7 years ago. Yet they are still very similar to eachother (especially Bachelor). No doubt in 10 year it will be very easy to spot the buildings which are 'typically 10's' - as it has been for every generation since the industrial revolution. And without a doubt equally easy for the generations before that.

I agree with the spliff fairy's Lo-Fi style, I can certainly image it being incorporated in the residential architecture of developed cities.

Don t think it will be a stile, more a "mood" perhaps or better moods - something eclectic and minimalist - Lo-Fi that you mentioned looks very interesting.

I think eclectic and minimalist is the answer anyway
