Architecture is perhaps the most complex discipline operating in more dimensions than any other coordinated human activity. However with the advancement of artificial intelligence, like every other profession, architects to are worried about the level of automation that has already taken away specific tasks from their roles.
While the ‘Humans are hooked and Machines are learning’, AI and ML are disrupting all manner of industries. Although AI has taken decades to go from crazy lab demos to a finished consumer product — today, there are immense possibilities for the industry to be augmented and enhanced by artificial intelligence.
The earliest sense of advancement in the construction field came with Building Information Modelling (BIM) — a term that has existed since the 1970s, but came to its penultimate fore in the early 2000s, when Autodesk began popularizing the tag.
The resulting by-product was the BIM software which is a type of intelligent 3D-modelling process used by architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) practitioners to design and construct any kind of infrastructure. BIM software includes computer-aided design (CAD software) tools and libraries specifically targeted toward architectural design and construction and goes beyond traditional drawings to generate a fully digital model.
Over several years the BIM (Building Information Modelling) software has had a huge influence on the day-to-day operations undertaken in an architectural firm.
The Parametric design or the programming architecture can scrape through several design styles in no time and can come up with a perfect Zaha style building plan — that would otherwise take years to be designed.
Over the last few dec
