This book explores the transformative impact of AI on architectural design, examining its integration in education and practice, and presenting case studies and guidelines on leveraging AI for creative and efficient design processes.
Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools are currently making a dynamic appearance in the architectural realm. Social media are being bombarded by word-to-image/image-to-image/word-to-3D/image-to-3D illustrations of fictive buildings generated by 2D or 3D AI algorithms. However, these “designs”, while visually appealing, have initiated a debate about their substance and the impact they have on conventional design methods. This book investigates the integration of generative ai-assisted methods into architectural design education and practice, its influence on design aesthetics, and its potential to enhance creativity and critical thinking in the architectural community.
The book highlights the advantages and challenges of the utilisation of AI image generator tools in the architectural design process. It includes 10-12 hands-on case studies on how AI can contribute to a creative design process as well as handbook instructions on how to utilise AI in order to achieve the required results.
Asterios Agkathidis studied architecture in the AU Thessaloniki and the RWTH Aachen, completing his postgraduate studies in Advanced Architectural Design at the Staedelschule Architecture Class (Frankfurt). He became a partner at b&k+ (Cologne), then worked for VMX architects (Amsterdam). He later founded the architecture and research laboratory a3lab Frankfurt-Thessaloniki and has been planning and realizing projects around the world since then. His work has been published, awarded and exhibited widely.
His teaching and lecturing experiences include AdbK Nuremberg, TU Darmstadt, AU Thessaloniki, University of Thessaly, Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, International Islamic University Malaysia, Columbia University and the Staedelschule Architecture Class. He was visiting assistant professor at the Lebanese American University and senior lecturer at Raffles Design Institute Shanghai. Today he holds a Lectureship for Digital Design at the University of Liverpool.
