This AI Architect Will Design Your Climate-Friendly Dream Home

Todd Woody of Bloomberg writes about how AI-powered architecture is designing eco-friendly homes.

The C3 Take
  • Icon, an Austin startup, is utilizing giant 3D-printing robots to construct an entire suburban neighborhood.
  • The firm’s AI architect, Vitruvius and is expected to automate construction schematics generation by the end of the year, halving build times and potentially reducing home costs by $100,000 all while employing climate friendly building materials
  • Additionally Icon has launched its CodeX program which incentivizes architects to submit designs for 3D-printed homes by paying them 1% of construction costs.

“Icon has spent 18 months developing its artificial intelligence program — named Vitruvius after an ancient Roman architect — which uses a chatbot to converse with would-be homeowners about their dream projects. After the user responds to a series of prompts, Vitruvius offers several versions of a house, complete with exterior and interior renderings and floor plans.”
