SPACE10 Proclaims Winners of International AI Design Competitors
Analysis and design lab SPACE10 publicizes the winners from their first ever international design competitors to reimagine residence — utilizing AI. With over 250 entries from around the globe, a panel of 10 globally famend architects, designers, AI artists, journalists, and creatives reviewed the submissions, and chosen 4 winners.
The jury panel consisted of worldwide famend architects, media, and AI artists similar to Tim Fu (Designer at Zaha Hadid Architects), Helen Job (Head of Analysis at SPACE10), David Basulto (CEO & Founding father of ArchDaily), Nick Jeffries (Senior Knowledgeable at Ellen MacArthur Basis), Javier Torner (International Options Division at UN Habitat), Mawuena Tendar (Co-Founding father of Customary Deviation), Dragon Li (Editor-in-Chief of Design Growth), Asuka Kawanabe (Freelance Journalist for Wired, Forbes, and others), Dominique Petit-Frère (Co-Founder and Inventive Director of Limbo Accra), and Linus Karlsson (Chief Inventive Officer, IKEA of Sweden AB).
We had been elated to have such a lot of entries from 4 continents, and quite a lot of disciplines. The outcomes actually present the potential of rising AI instruments to permit for brand spanking new, numerous, and hopeful visions of the longer term, in a time that requires us to think about new methods of dwelling. Designing for the Future in Harsh Environments, by Kedar Deshpande and awarded the very best total award by our jury, exemplifies the potential of human-AI collaboration to examine a resilient, imaginative and accessible way of life that’s regenerative by design.

Over the previous yr, generative AI instruments have created the chance for tens of millions of individuals to visualise worlds past these we ever thought potential. Half competitors, half open-source analysis, Regenerative Futures inspired play and creativeness to create visible ideas of future properties, communities, and cities to assist deal with the challenges going through on a regular basis life. Learn on to search out out in regards to the chosen proposals.
Designing for the Future in Harsh Environments / Kedar Deshpande (Expertise Designer) United States
ChatGPT proved invaluable in researching regenerative residence design inside the ecosystem I used to be designing for, offering insights into the way forward for utilising pure supplies, bio-adaptive structure and disaster-resistant design. These had been used as seeds to examine buildings inside Midjourney. Designing for the Future in Harsh Environments is a resilient residence idea. It combines locally-sourced supplies similar to sand and clay with pure fibres to create biocomposite supplies that present insulation and are appropriate for modular building. The dwelling achieves off-grid vitality independence by integrating photo voltaic, hydrogen-generating gardens, and piezoelectric units into the house’s structural elements.
The proposal creates concord between design and atmosphere, incorporating the semi-arid traits to construct an built-in structure that protects in opposition to excessive temperatures and preserves ecosystems.

Resilient Futures: Plant Pods / Branden Collins (Interdisciplinary Designer) United States
Plant Pods is a proposal for a regenerative, inflatable, and wearable residence. The outside of the pod is roofed in an algae movie that captures photo voltaic vitality, producing all the electrical energy wanted to energy the house. A rainwater harvesting system collects and filters water to be used within the residence or for the wearer on the go. The design prioritises portability and modularity — when not in use as a self-sustaining dwelling, it acts as a wearable, protecting garment. It was Designed in collaboration with Midjourney and ChatGPT.
The writer challenges the standard solutions to the housing disaster and places themselves right into a future the place we’ve to embrace a nomadic model that strikes away from extraction and to co-living with nature. A radical new way of life is imagined, and the immediate visualises one thing that couldn’t be fabricated as we speak however appears believable, and hopeful.

Symbiotic Futures: WombHome (Vientre Materno): Decolonizing Nature / Takbir Fatima (Architect) y Abeer Fatima (Inside Designer) India
As an alternative of synthetic building techniques that can not be recycled, WombHome proposes a delicate carving of area inside pure buildings. This imagined cave gives shelter and security, with out consuming extra vitality or creating dangerous emissions and building waste. WombHome is of course cooled and ventilated, permits sunshine, and options semi-open courtyards for vegetation to develop and cohabitate with people. Designed in collaboration with Midjourney and ChatGPT.
The picture high quality is extraordinarily excessive and visually gorgeous. The structure exhibits advanced spatial relationships and informs a programmatic stance in direction of communal dwelling. The quite a few interiors showcase completely different configurations and methods of dwelling. Materials system and type breaks from the standard structure we see.
— Tim Fu, architectural designer, Zaha Hadid Architects
Colective Futures – Metropolis After the Flood / Gustavo Jimenez (Architect) Spain
Metropolis After the Flood is an alternate, symbiotic and densified imaginative and prescient of collective dwelling. These post-flood cities could be constructed utilizing supplies extracted from buildings and houses wrecked by flooding. A waste administration community would get well and categorise supplies, lowering environmental contamination. Plans could be made to relocate and rebuild historic buildings, alongside methods to reuse broken buildings. New wood infrastructures could be constructed with few helps to maintain the land free and scale back the impression.
The one city challenge to point out a artistic materials system that merges biomaterial utilization with type and meeting that’s outdoors the field. Pictures characteristic comparable visible language that creates a cohesive challenge.
— Tim Fu, architectural designer, Zaha Hadid Architects
The finalists’ AI-generated visions of future properties and cities at the moment are exhibiting at SPACE10 Gallery in Copenhagen as a part of Design within the Age of AI. The exhibition investigates if latest developments in AI can assist us design a greater residence for folks and the planet. SPACE10 partnered with Copenhagen-based artist and design duo Wang & Söderström on the exhibition design, showcasing 4 speculative initiatives offered by completely different design studios. Approaching AI instruments as collaborative companions, SPACE10 seems at the way forward for furnishings, product and architectural design — rethinking design archetypes and the supplies we use.
