TL;DR: AI in architecture from theory to practice.
Abstract: The Architectural creation is always affected by technological development and available resources. The presence of computation and the advent of artificial intelligence opens new ways in architectural design and implementation, which is not only embodies in the technical application of the new medium, but present in the new design logic as well. This paper provides an overview about the three main branches of artificial intelligence starting with a short introduction of the long-lasting relationship of computation and architecture. Starting from a theoretical base and reaching to the architectural application of symbolicism, connectionism and actionism. The achievement of the research will point out how digital tools foster a novel design approach in architecture.
