How do artificial intelligence pictures shape the homes of the future?

Official reports show that nearly 20 percent of carbon dioxide emissions in the UK come from the energy used in homes, so specialists believe that the best time to transform it into more sustainable homes is now, and it seems that artificial intelligence has not lost sight of this natural need. and humanity.

Modern architecture

Earlier last year, as AI-powered tools became accessible to more people from converting text to an image to creating human-style text, an AI bot (OpenGPT) picked the design trends for 2023, predicting what it could bring Artificial intelligence in architecture in the near term, and when asked about his opinion regarding the main trends in architecture this year, his answer was that it is difficult to predict with certainty specific trends, as the field of architecture is constantly evolving and reshaped by a wide range of factors such as cultural, economic and technological changes. However, there are some general trends that have emerged in recent years and may continue to shape patterns in this field in the future, such as sustainability, energy efficiency, an increasing focus on environmentally friendly building design, and greater use of technology in building design and construction, from 3D modeling and printing to BIM and the Internet of Things. (IOT) and biophilic design, which integrates elements of nature into buildings.

future homes

Finally, several architectural sites cooperated with companies specialized in artificial intelligence, so that the latter provides a visualization of the shape of contemporary homes, producing different graphics using image-generating programs through text such as “Midjourney” or “DALL-E”.

By investigating the way in which design and building materials will evolve in the future, artificial intelligence predicted that the focus would be on creating homes more in harmony with nature, and the results reflected the need to adapt to changing requirements and weather patterns through research focused on five major cities in the United Kingdom: London, Manchester and Belfast. Edinburgh and Cardiff, and the five international cities of Paris, Dubai, Amsterdam, New York and Toronto, the research was carried out by the home insurance team at Compare the market in collaboration with architect Chris Lawson, managing director of CK Architectural.

The results of innovative designs by artificial intelligence highlighted the increased use of green architecture such as living walls and building materials made from concentrated fungi that can store carbon, which helps cities become more sustainable as well as helps homes that will implement these measures to live more in harmony with nature.

Outlook supports sustainability

Artificial intelligence predicted that houses in London would be built of fast-growing timber to prevent the use of perennial trees in the construction industry and for green architecture to appear strongly. The use of wind energy, and for solar panels that operate without direct sunlight appeared as a major feature in the Edinburgh house, while the Manchester house was distinguished by large reflective panels that act as solar panels that capture and reflect excess light energy on the lower panels, so that energy reflection helps in different parts of the region The environment helps to promote a more diverse environment by allowing the sun’s rays to reach the darkest places.

The designs for London and Edinburgh feature living walls and concentrated fungi as a building element, the future house in Toronto featured carbon block construction, in Paris it’s possible that tall homes will be built with living walls to help replace biodiversity across the city, and in Dubai, solar panels. A key feature of this city home, Chris Lawson commented that in the future all Dubai buildings could receive cooling naturally from contact with the ground and be protected from the wind at the same time.

Contemporary designs

On the other hand, the “Arch Daily” website carried out this experiment in cooperation with Ulises Studio to produce a collection of images that ranged between reality and imagination, and provided inspirations about what is called in architectural thought “spatial practice” that combines art and architecture and how to create its images.

The first step of the research was to ask “Medjourney” to imagine a contemporary house displayed on the “Arch Daily” website, and as a result, “Medjourney” showed very similar images in style with few differences in terms of materials used and the general context, attributing the reason for this resulting homogeneity to architectural styles. Most of the buildings have two floors and perpendicular lines with common functions on the ground floor and a more private area on the upper level with large glass openings.

In order to reach a broader approach to how artificial intelligence perceives contemporary homes, the experiment was repeated using new details in an attempt to break the dominant image in the program’s data. For this purpose, 15 countries were chosen to predict the shape of the contemporary home in them, which are Brazil, Chile, China, India, Germany, Ghana, Indonesia and Japan, along with Mexico. Nigeria, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United States, and Vietnam, making the results more personalized.

The results that emerged in the predictions provided by the artificial intelligence are only a reminder of the need to shift to a more sustainable building pattern, starting with investing in solar panels that can work on cloudy days, all the way to ensuring that the house is completely insulated, checking hollow walls, floors and roofs, and installing heat pumps that use Geothermal energy and the installation of energy-saving devices such as water-saving taps that combine air and water and reduce the use, and the construction of green roofs that will in total reduce energy bills in the future.
