Introduction to the workshop:

Combinational Creativity using Generative AI

Generative AI transcends the role of a mere addition to the technological toolkit of a designer. It is a revolutionary force fostering a transformative wave across diverse sectors, from fashion to architecture, advertising to product design. This transformation is not just about automating tasks; it’s about redefining the very essence of how human artifacts are conceived, designed, and brought to reality or to market.

The principal innovation of generative AI resides in what is termed ‘Combinatorial Creativity,’ a definition entailing the synthesis and recombination of images or ideas that facilitate the generation of novel concepts that may not be readily apparent or intuitive to humans. Thus, it becomes essential for a contemporary designer to understand and embrace this new paradigm. The workshop aims not just to share and adopt new tools but to rethink the design process itself. Join Arturo Tedeschi, a renowned expert in parametric design and AI, for a comprehensive session where he will reveal his methodologies, refined through fifteen years in the forefront of architecture and industrial design.

Additionally, he will introduce AI tools and workflows that have been rigorously tested over the past two years, offering a blend of long-term expertise and cutting-edge technological advancements, providing a theoretical framework and a critical approach to the subject of generative AI.

The scope of the workshop:

The aim of this program is to explore and develop innovative concepts for architecture concepts, products, art installations, and creative artifacts. The ultimate goal is to equip participants with a new framework for creative strategies, informed decision-making, and innovative techniques, essential skills for turning concepts into tangible projects in the era of AI. The structure of the course is based on two main theoretical foundations:


Generative AI can expose artists, designers, and creators to a wider range of styles, ideas, and combinations than they might encounter in their usual creative process. This exposure can inspire new directions in their work.


AI acts as a creative partner, effectively ‘brainstorming’ with the artist, offering effortless pre-visualization and iterations. AI can help visualize multiple interpretations of an idea or concept initially represented as quick sketches or diagrams. Throughout the program, students will be challenged to generate concepts responding to specific creative categories briefs.

  1. Hello, it is impossible for me to attend but I would love to get access to the recordings. How can we arrange this?

  2. The workshop was very educative and filled with information gems. It was practical and covered not just the use of the tools but how the design profession is evolving. Arturo is a great teacher and communicator, his experience is very versatile yet he breaks down his knowledge into chunks that can be easily understood by novices. I highly recommend this course for anyone interested on starting their Ai Journey
