Empowering building design professionals through Artificial Intelligence on the cloud

Project description

A cloud platform for eco-efficient buildings

As populations grow, housing demands increase. In the last three decades alone, those demands have nearly doubled, sparking concerns over the need to efficiently manage natural resources. Developers and design teams alike are scrambling to produce eco-efficient buildings at faster and less costly rates. Smartscapes is developing ARCHITEChTURES, the first cloud-based platform for sustainable architecture design, powered by artificial intelligence. The data-driven platform provides architects with highly developed 3D editable BIM files within hours, scaling down on costs and months of labour required with the use of traditional software. Smartscapes has already launched a limited operative platform. An ongoing feasibility study aims to define the best commercialisation route.

Objective

In the next 35 years urban population will double producing a huge growing demand for housing. As population grows, concerns related to efficient management of natural resources is also increasing. The pressure is on for developers and design teams to find ways of designing eco-efficient buildings at a faster pace at lower costs, whilst maintaining or even increasing the building quality levels.

As an outcome of >3 years of R&D investment in AI-based architectural design, Smartscapes is developing ARCHITEChTURES: the first cloud-based platform for sustainable architecture design, powered by Artificial Intelligence. Our goal is to make environmentally responsible housing widely affordable whilst drastically increasing architects’ productivity: creating faster, better and greener building designs. Through ARCHITEChTURES, architects no longer need to work from a blank design and depend on a great deal of specialised knowledge/time to bet on the practise of green housing design. Our data-driven platform creates the best starting point: highly developed 3D editable BIM files in a matter of hours, rather than months as in traditional software. ARCHITEChTURES’ designs are automatically optimized and eco-efficient, also blending with the building environment. Our pricing is adapted to users’ needs and size and viability studies/reports are automatically generated at an early stage to better guide the overall project development.

The company behind ARCHITEChTURES is built on the back of 20 years of architecture and software development expertise. Smartscapes already launched a limited applicability operative platform, which generated great interest in the professional sector. The present feasibility study aims to define the best commercialisation route, targeted markets and feature implementation roadmap. ARCHITECTURES is the cornerstone of our strategic plan to catapult our enterprise and to position our enterprise as a leading innovator in the digital architecture era.
