The debate over whether artificial intelligence (AI) can outperform human architects in design has been ongoing for years. With the advent of advanced AI tools like ChatGPT and Midjourney AI, this debate has intensified, as these tools have shown remarkable capabilities in generating optimized and sustainable design solutions. In this experiment by Dami Lee, and Raffaele Di Nicola of NolliStudio, with Trushit Vyas from Supersh*t architecture studio based out of Vancouver, find out how AI is better at some tasks in architecture design, and how it is emerging as a competing player.
In this amazing video aptly named AI vs. ARCHITECT where this amazing team of highly passionate architects takes on AI tools to find out if AI is better or they are better at Architecture. While AI is clearly way ahead in terms of production quality at this time I think with a little more deeper look you can find some challenges with the function. While AI is not fully there yet, I think it will get there in a short amount of time.
I hope you enjoy this video.

Conclusion – AI vs Architecture.
AI tools like ChatGPT and Midjourney AI are better than human architects at certain tasks in architecture design, particularly those that require precision, efficiency, and optimization. However, they cannot replace human creativity and intuition yet, which are essential to the art form of architecture.
The future of architecture design lies in a hybrid approach that combines the strengths of AI tools with the creativity and intuition of human architects. Eventually these AI tools will become more powerful and eventually replace architects. I think we need to rethink the future of architecture in the age of AI. We need architects to build processes, checks and balances so AI does not go rogue. We need architects to formulate a body to inform policy decision making and finally we need to change the way we educate future architects.
I think the question is is it AI vs Architects or AI vs Architecture.
