One would have to look to what has been written in SF, put unto the film screens, and told by those that assert have experienced alien encounters ... some say have visited their planets. In short, the future of our species may take variegate courses depending much (one should rationally think) on what the humans do in the planet. Foremost to continued progress is sustainability of one maintenable environment without wars of such scale that bomb us to the stone age... a situation (or one of akin effects) that humankind or other humankinds other than homo sapiens may have experienced before.
Within that given, humans should have time enough (who knows, we are yet much ignorant of the life of planets) to evolve intelligent solutions to the problems developing, and then enjoy the achievements.
I having been a fond reader of the UFOs stuff would say that one way of seeing the physical implementations there described is seeing them as physical extensions: the ships, jumpsuits are organically integrated to the beings. Furthermore the organic "vessels" (bodies) when used by entities take such stance: a body is a tool for some soul.
Hence what one should expect of our developments is tools and buildings fitting closely our proven demands. In fact I have already described in this forum how in the book "Coevolution" by Alec Newald are described houses that adapt to the wishes of the indwellers, say, walls turning transparent by mere will to let light in.
