10th Advanced Architecture Contest – AI for the Built Environment
Тема конкурса в этом году – искусственный интеллект в архитектуре, городском планировании и дизайне. Задача – продемонстрировать, как современные инструменты могли бы помочь в решении актуальных проблем городов и их жителей. Формат, масштаб и география проектов остаются на усмотрение участников.
The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) calls its 10th Advanced Architecture Contest as a global reflection to explore the transformative potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the built environment. This competition aims to inspire participants to envision novel applications of AI mixed with non-AI tools that can shape the future of architecture, urban planning, and design.
Design disciplines have evolved from material-focused to data-centric, driven by the digital revolution over the last three decades. The 90s introduced the internet, connecting people and information globally. The 00s saw the rise of online platforms, while the 10s witnessed the proliferation of apps and programs transforming user experiences. Now, in the new decade, AI is central to content creation across various fields. This evolution parallels the development of digital design: 90s text-based, 00s visual graphics, and 10s UI/UX design. Looking ahead, the 2020s promise 3D UX/UI development with AI for immersive, boundary-blurring digital experiences.
Participants are challenged to envision innovative design solutions that harness the potential of AI in the built environment using both AI and non-AI tools. Proposals should investigate how advanced technology tools can offer fresh perspectives on the built environment. These imaginaries can range from critical speculation to forward-thinking projections. The designs should directly engage with one of the topics proposed and respond providing design interventions across a wide range of scales:
