How Technology have changed the Field of Design.

What kind of an impact will artificial intelligence have in the society and mainly in the field of architecture is discussed more precisely when studying the possible threats and opportunities of artificial intelligence. 


Now that the apps and computational devices are smart enough to update themselves cognitively.

This technology is understood as one which is interlinked and self designing by itself. The vice president of Digital Manufacturing of Autodesk told that “now a one-man designer, a graduate designer, can get access to the same amount of computing power as these big multinational companies”​.

​Hence, the architect with all the necessary data, he loads it to the software, the software takes it to account and creates a design and provide a solution.

For example, in Revit software, the routing of the mechanical equipments can be automatically generated by the software itself, where it gives us few options of routing and the computer system will then suggest a range of solutions which fulfill these criteria.

This innovation has the potential to revolutionize how architecture is not only imagined but how it is fundamentally expressed for designers who choose to adopt these new methods.  

The parametric design has been optimized for designing with the help of the software called as Dreamcatcher which can also be link and extended by other softwares such as revit and dynamo.

The interesting thing about the software is that it can take a wide range of input such as requirement from the engineering point of view, mathematical formulas, Geometry details and sensor information and the dreamcatcher software is also finding a way that it will be able identify pictures and text format when loaded in to it.

Thus making the future Architects not to put most of their effort in the drawings and mostly involved in the specifying requirements of the problem. 


After all this level, it’s not a surprise that Artificial Intelligence had entered to construction industry.

Innovative practices also known as Computational Architecture, which are dealing with the robots to research in Artificial Intelligence in the field of Fabrication and construction.

Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger are the people who found Computational Architecture, Which has its own way of designing informs of fabricating a structure to its detail and finest form with help of 3D printers.

Michael says ​“the confluence of advances in both computation and fabrication technologies lets us create an architecture of hit her to unimaginable forms, with an unseen level of detail, producing entirely new spatial sensations.”

3D printing in the twenty first century developed by Artificial Intelligence has its own way of style which it portrays its design.

Bringing back to life the details in ornamentation and details, which is the traditional way might not work in the modern era.

Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger Grotto Prototype for the Super Material exhibition, London, was a complex architectural grotto 3D-printed from sandstone. The sand grain structure was actually designed by computing algorithms.

The structure was designed in away it had lot of ornamental details which were different from the traditional way of designing but the aim of the design is to portray that now 3D printing can also be done in a large scale projects. 

Robotics are being used in the field of Construction Industry mostly for the purpose of logistics and human resource.


Innovation involves with integrating Artificial intelligence in the existing infrastructure and design or designing with Artificial Intelligence.

Mark Zuckerberg’s favorite project is to develop a network artificial intelligence in his house. His wish is to create simple AI so that when he is home he can communicate to his house like he says to switch off the lights and the light goes off.

The Architects took it as challenge ​of designing home-integrated systems, such as the Ori System of responsive furniture, or gadgets such as Eliq for energy monitoring.

Other innovations were driverless car and designing a cityscape through Artificial Intelligence knowing all the circulation and important nodes of the particular space,limiting our need for more roads and parking areas.

Behnaz Farahi is a young architect who is employing her research into AI and adaptive surfaces to develop interactive designs, such as in her Aurora and Breathing Wall projects.

She creates immersive and engaging indoor environments which adapt to and learn from their occupants. Her approach is one of many—different practices with different goals will adapt AI at different stages of their process, creating a multitude of architectural languages. 


Business analysts at the consultancy Deloitte discharged an examination demonstrating that, over the most recent 140 years, innovation has really made a greater number of occupations than it has devastated in England and Wales.

This cycle of killing and making employments can be difficult, however it will ideally happen at a moderate enough pace that will enable workers to adapt and develop.
