Mathias Juul Frost presents a series of charming AI generated homes that question the everyday nature of modern residential architecture. Entitled ‘A house you say good morning to and hug when you get home’, the project is a commentary on the somewhat coldness of modern homes. Rejecting the rigidity of these typically brick, rectangular masses with repetitive square windows, Frost’s designs propose dynamic abstracted houses composed of sculptural organic forms.

MAXIMUM AI-GENERATED EXPLORERS RESTORE THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES WITH ENCHANTING GOLDEN FAÇADES
image by Kaveh Najafian
Using artificial intelligence program Midjouney, architectural designer Kaveh Najafian envisions a series of hypnotic renderings of the Palace of Versailles adorned with feathers and maximalist golden facades. Entitled ‘Flying Versailles’, the series is part of an iterative process or experiment carried out by only textual clues that are constantly tweaked and carefully modified to become more accurate.
Kaveh Najafian uses the Palace of Versailles as the main facade to experiment with, as it is a model of decorative architecture in Europe and the pinnacle of French Baroque. Because Midjouney has a heavy database of references for Versailles, it counts as a “natural habitat” for the AI software. In addition, the sheer amount of online material provides a solid base for the software to work with. The details of the facades and interior are in harmony with the artistic language of the scaled-up functions of Midjouney V3, the text-to-art AI generator, which helps to produce accurate results.

SCULPTURAL, AI-GENERATED FACADES MIX RENAISSANCE & BAROQUE FORMS WITH LIQUID SILK
image by Mohammad Qasim Iqbal
Mohammad Qasim Iqbal continues his experiments with Half way through the journey present a series AI generated structures exploring renaissance and baroque facades, interwoven with delicate fabric-like elements. The grand, intricately decorated structures retain the rigidity of historic stone architecture alongside their distinctive baroque and renaissance forms. Taking these elements to new realms, the rendered facades are engraved from tensile silk in a fluid, dreamlike, contemporary expression that invites viewers to closely observe the contrasting yet complementary materials as they unexpectedly unfold and merge.

AI-GENERATED ‘ARCHI-CREATURES’ FROM THE FUTURE LIVE LIFE IN STATIC ARCHITECTURE
image by Mohamad Rasoul Moosapour
Mohamad Rasoul Moosapour exploits the potential of AI tool Half way through the journey to envision an alternate future occupied by “semi-living” architectural structures overrun by living organisms with his new series of Archi creatures. The Iranian architect delves beyond the realm of physical architectural design to create a range of AI generated graphics of photos, drawings and models of buildings and infrastructure with his new imaginative research collection. Envisioning a new future where buildings are shaped by a deep biological understanding of the world, rather than a physical one, the static structures are brought to life and transformed from silent, non-breathing objects to ‘semi-living’ objects.
AI RECONSTRUCTS PARAONIC ARCHITECTURE MODULES INTO ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISTIC COMPOSITIONS
image by Hassan Ragab
With his new AI generated series Post Pharaonic Architecture, interdisciplinary designer Hassan Ragab explores abstract expressionist interpretations of monumental ancient Egyptian architecture. Looking at the original stone-carved forms of Pharaonic architecture, the designer depicts the historic structures through a juxtaposed, abstracted lens of the Expressionist movement of the 20th century.
Using text-to-image artificial intelligence tool half way through the journey, Hassan Ragab recomposes the fundamental modules of primitive architecture in dynamic and abstract compositions. The resulting imposing stone structures reveal decorated facades inscribed with fading hieroglyphs, intricate openings and vast, fragmented strata.
