AI Is Changing the Future of Architecture
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a computer system that simulates reasoning, learns from experiences, and problem-solves. This powerful tool is now an integral part of many industries, and architecture is no exception.
Here are several ways AI is changing the future of architecture by making an architect’s job easier and allowing them to be more creative.
Architects make sure their clients are familiar with every stage of the job. Typically, this would involve explaining technicalities while presenting a blueprint. Yet, with AI, clients have a more memorable experience.
Virtual reality (VR) lets them walk through the proposed building, giving them a better understanding of what it’ll look like once constructed. The 360-degree view of the project also makes it easier to comprehend the actual scale of the space.
Building Information Modeling
With the cloud-based platform Building Information Modeling (BIM), architects can create a 3D model of a building and have real-time collaboration with engineers and construction professionals. This model gives a representation of how the real-life version will look and operate.
BIM-based software is useful for identifying building components, materials, quantities, and more. All in all, implementing BIM allows for greater visibility, better decision making, and cost-savings.
Traditional architectural style staples are sharp corners and straight lines. Parametric design is a departure that gives way to free-form concepts. Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools make it easier to introduce irregular shapes and curves and help give buildings unique characteristics.
AI is used for urban planning, which is the development of towns and cities. Many areas are becoming smart cities, more efficient, safe, and sustainable. AI takes out the implicit bias and comes up with options more quickly than humans could alone.
Typically, urban planners create a design proposal and see how the design performs. Now, they can state the challenges available and the outcome they want, and AI provides support, helping to find the best possible solution.
Generative AI, with its ability to translate simple text commands into hyperdetailed final renderings, has taken architecture by storm. With machine learning algorithms, architects can quickly materialize what they imagine. The immediacy of results has never been so quick. Architects spend less time on the screen and more time realizing ideas.
