Currently, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become an essential component in numerous professional fields, including architecture, interior design, and landscaping.


Aware of this emerging reality, DSTUDIO, under the direction of Daniel Valera, as part of its research project Creating Alliances with Artificial Intelligence (DLAB), presents a 12-hour intensive course: "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence for Architects, Interior Designers, and Landscapers." This course is designed to provide a fundamental and practical understanding of AI and its application in these creative fields.


Course Objective

The main objective of this course is to equip design professionals and enthusiasts with the knowledge and tools necessary to understand and apply AI in their projects. Through a theoretical-practical approach, participants will explore how AI can be a powerful tool in research, the creative process, project visualization, optimization, and the maintenance of works and gardens. The course is divided into three thematic blocks, with a total duration of 12 hours, spread over two days.

Block I: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence 

This block introduces Artificial Intelligence (AI), starting with an overview of the course, expectations, objectives, and digital resources. It covers basic concepts of algorithms and programming, exploring definitions, history, and principles of Machine Learning and Deep Learning. The importance of programming in AI is highlighted. It also discusses the current and future challenges, ethical considerations, and social impact, along with relevant regulations. The section concludes with an introduction to specific AI tools, such as Midjourney and Chat GPT, emphasizing their applications in design.

Block II: Main AI Technologies Available 

This block focuses on the available AI technologies, classifying and reviewing applications in our sector. It delves into virtual assistants like Chat GPT, highlighting their relevance in design. Image generation through Midjourney illustrates the potential of AI in project visualization. Additionally, other emerging technologies are examined, assessing their impact on design and architecture. This segment offers a comprehensive understanding of how AI can be integrated and benefit specifically these fields.

Block III: Applications of AI. Practical Cases in Our Sector

The last block highlights the practical applications of AI in research, creativity, and project optimization. It explores case studies demonstrating how AI fosters innovation and improves project visualization and presentation. Additionally, the section addresses the efficiency and effectiveness enhanced by AI in design. Finally, specific applications of AI in construction and garden maintenance are discussed, underscoring relevant technologies in this area. 


Methodology and Approach

The course is characterized by an interactive and practical approach. Through lectures, demonstrations, group discussions, and practical exercises, participants will acquire knowledge directly applicable to their professional projects. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to work with real cases from DSTUDIO, providing a unique and highly relevant learning experience.  

This course is aimed at professionals and students of architecture, interior design, and landscaping, as well as anyone interested in understanding how AI can transform these fields.


Location and Schedule

The course will take place on November 17 and 18, 2023.
On Friday, it will run from 16:00 to 20:00 hours, and on Saturday from 10:00 to 14:00 and from 15:00 to 19:00 hours.
