AI Creative Challenge 2.0

The fusion of artificial intelligence (AI) and design technologies offers exciting new possibilities for creative expression. The AI Creative Challenge 2.0 aims to explore the synergy between human creativity and AI-powered tools, such as Midjourney, Stable Diffusion and Dalle2, in the rapidly evolving field of architectural design.


We are excited to announce the “AI Creative Challenge 2.0”, a global event that brings architects and designers together to push the boundaries of AI-driven design in architecture. The Challenge is to harness the capabilities of these AI tools to quickly ideate, visualize, and create conceptually impressive architectural designs. Highlighting the importance of human prompting and imagination. AI tools like Midjourney, Stable Difusion, and Dalle2 are essential for this competition because they enable rapid design iteration and visualization, fostering a deeper understanding of AI’s creative potential. By participating in this groundbreaking event, designers will join a dynamic community of professionals dedicated to advancing architectural design through AI-driven innovation.

Join our Membership and participate in the AI Creative Challenge 2.0 to be part of the future of architectural design. Register now and embrace the power of AI in redefining design possibilities.

Challenge Topic

Design a Shelter for Low-Income Communities

In a world where every square foot counts, it’s crucial that Shalter’s design realm puts both function and the human experience at the forefront. A design goes beyond providing basic amenities, aiming to build spaces that resonate with life and culture. Make use of the advantage of AI-powered design tools to simulate various environmental and user scenarios and explore distinctive alternatives in materials and construction techniques to ensure that designs are both resilient and user-centric, truly anticipating the evolving phases of a shelter’s life journey.
