Is Artificial Intelligence and Generative Architecture a Threat for Architects? | Part 2

In the first part of this article, we talked about generative architecture and the importance of artificial intelligence today. Now let's dig deeper.

How can AI help reshape the world of architecture?

Architecture is a profession that demands a lot of creativity. There are so many factors to consider when designing a building, from regulations and zoning ordinances to budget and construction time. The process can be messy and chaotic, especially if it’s your first time designing a structure.

Architectural artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to completely reshape the way architects operate and create structures. With the help of AI, architects can design more efficiently, quickly analyze budgets and materials, enhance safety standards, and even build entire structures from the ground up with minimal input.

3D Printing and Generative Architecture

Another aspect of generative architecture is the use of 3D printing in the creation of architectural structures. Computer programs can be designed to create 3D models and then use these models to print out complex, free-form physical structures. This can be done by large- scale 3D printers. This technology can create almost any type of structure from a wide range of materials, including concrete, metals, sand, and even water. This means that architects can design their structures using computer programs and then have them literally printed out in the real world, without the need for any human builders or manual labor. This could not only drastically reduce the time and cost of creating a new architectural structure, but also ensure that its creation is extremely environmentally friendly.

How Architecture Firms can use Generative Design Today with STRATO AI?

Historically architects moved from pencils to CAD software, afterward from CAD to BIM workflows and computational design. The BIM models opened the ability to start thinking about the algorythnical approach in architecture. Together with the newest trends such as computational design and mass customization, the AI approach is becoming a handy tool for architects.

STRATO AI is a construction automation software for prefab technologies to automate the design process. STRATO AI is a generative intelligence solution for modular, panel, and 3D printed house designs where the customers’ needs are processed by artificial intelligence. The output of the computation is expressed in a way that every architect can work with – every uniquely designed building is exported as a usual CAD drawing or BIM model that integrates into a current design process seamlessly.

The alone modular approach or mixed modular and panel or modular and 3D printed parts rely upon several different algorithms – the architectural rulesets of aesthetics and regulations in combination with technological edge cases (maximum span length, width of modular objects, angle of printing, etc.). The instant evaluation of generated plans and 3D models is done immediately and buildings then are rated in accordance with daylight, energy, or cost-effectiveness.


The architecture of the future will be completely different from the architecture of today. While manual labor and static machines have been used to create buildings and other types of architectural structures for many years, the future will be all about AI. With the help of computer programs that were created using AI, customers can order prefabricated house which is personalized and customized according to their specific needs, architects can create new designs that involve free form concepts and complex geometry that could be digitized and printed out with large-scale 3D printer. This has the potential to completely reshape the world of architecture and create new architectural structures that have never been seen before.
