Designing Responsibly: Navigating the Ethical Terrain of AI in Architecture

1.0 LU/HSW  


Course Summary:

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to permeate various industries, its impact on architecture raises both excitement and apprehension. This course will explore the multifaceted landscape of AI in architecture, delving into its terminology, boundaries, and underlying technologies. From machine learning algorithms to generative design tools, it will dissect the mechanisms driving these innovations.

The course will confront the inherent dangers and limitations within AI systems, ranging from biased input data to broader socio-environmental justice concerns. Through this critical lens, participants will discern how AI intersects with ethics and responsibility in architecture.

Central to the discussion is the alignment of AI with the principles of responsible architecture. This dialogue will emphasize safeguarding the health, safety, and welfare of communities, highlighting how AI can serve as both a catalyst for positive change and a potential source of harm if misapplied.
