Artificial Intelligence: Urbanism, Ethics and Design I (NYIT School of Architectural Design)
A discussion on new disciplinary paradigms and possibilities for architecture generated through the automation of computational design.
While architecture as a cultural project aims to displace the determination of cultural conventions, technological determinism through disruption can lead to the homogenization of media, and a series of questions about computation in design. Where does architectural creativity resides through applications of AI in today’s design environments?
For an architecture of information, automating Artificial Intelligence for design opens architecture limited to the design of buildings to the design of systems which generate buildings, activating a meta-architecture. This architecture of architectures is being paralleled to algorithms that optimize algorithms or meta-algorithms. Following a series of presentations by invited speakers, a panel discussion aims to address new disciplinary paradigms and possibilities for architecture generated through the automation of computational design.
