The Future of Architecture in the Age of AI

Please join GSAPP Career Services and Jay Shah ‘09 MS.AAD for an engaging lecture on AI in architecture over the past five years. Discover how AI is not just a static tool but an exciting phase to explore, play with, and integrate into specific workflows. Learn from real-world case studies, including insights from my AI start-up, Kaizen AI, and explore cutting-edge advancements in AI, such as Meta’s smart glasses and other innovative hardware. This session will inspire you to see AI’s vast potential in reshaping the architectural landscape.

Key Points:

Disruption in Architecture: Within five years, nearly 80% of manhours in large architectural firms will become unnecessary due to advancements in technology.

Technological Revolution: This shift is driven by the gradual yet impactful development of existing software and platforms, leading to fundamental changes in architectural roles.
