Dreaming with AI

Introduction to the workshop

AI is here to stay and is already having a strong influence on all design sectors at a speed beyond what our senses can clearly perceive. It is our responsibility as professionals to prepare ourselves to properly use these amazing tools, prioritizing the human factor and establishing guidelines for a balanced and conscious handling of them. The course will delve into technical, philosophical, theoretical, and practical aspects of creating design concepts using Midjourney 5.1 as a tool. The possibilities are endless, and this is just the beginning.

The scope of the workshop / Methodology / Objectives:

The ‘Dreaming with AI’ workshop will delve into the deep conceptualization of innovative design projects, mainly in the fields of architecture, urban design, robotics, transportation, and industrial design in general. During the course, students will be given concepts to develop based on what they learned in the first phase, and eventually, they will be the ones who will be able to propose one or more of the topics to be developed. The objective is for students to obtain a broader theoretical and practical framework regarding the use of AI for design and eventually develop their own methods or improve existing ones.
