We believe a single idea can have a butterfly effect--that each project can create global impact.  It's what drives AI's mission to create sustainable, people-centric architecture for a planet.

 

Architecture evolves in response to local conditions yet retains universal values.  We are faced with inconvenient truths: climate change, hyper-urbanization, and rising economic and social challenges.   Architecture has the power to organize ideas, raise awareness, and enable action towards global goals.

A vision for our planet, one project at a time.

Forward-thinking architecture for a planet.

The future is looking up.

 

AI is a transformative global practice exploring the integration of architecture and technology to elevate the human experience.  We search for innovative solutions to sustainable development which are responsive to nature and to our humanity.

 

At the heart of our practice is the understanding that architecture is a technology: the technology of shelter, of form, and of space.  We combine creativity with insight to enable the world's most advanced, intelligent, and breath-taking buildings.

Beyond Beautiful

Architecture with Intelligence

 

Architectural Intelligence is the fusion of logic and creative processes to create human-centric works of architecture that transcend art.  AI creates buildings which are as beautiful as they are technological, sustainable, and societal.

 

We look beyond the surface to understand buildings as the synthesis of Form, Light, Space, Structure, Systems, and Materials.  These constructs coalesce around the focal point of architecture—the formation of space for human action and interaction.

People-Centric Architecture.

Opening your world.

 

Shakespeare famously said “All the world’s a stage.”  We believe that architecture-as-object is secondary to the primary purpose of architecture — to create the places where we play out our lives.

 

AI redefines architecture as freedom of movement between boundaries; to open up walls and spaces, to let cities breathe with the ebb and flow of people going about their daily lives.

 

Life is your stage.  Write your own play.  Let us open your world.

 

The Nature of Cities.

 

We are an urban species.  Over 50% of the world’s population lives in built environments.  Yet, rapid urbanization and technological consumption only reinforce our intuitive desire to rediscover nature.  As cities grow increasingly dense, we require innovative solutions to create the spaces and surfaces for people to interact with the natural environment.

Urban habitats are the product of design—the nurturing of a fragile balance between the natural and built environments.  The nature of cities, redefined for a sustainable age.

Reconnecting environment to create resilient urban habitats.

Smart Cities.

Made Smarter with Intelligent Architecture.


A Smart City is only as intelligent as the sum of its parts.  As 5G-enabled networks and Internet of Things technologies bring our cities online, buildings need to keep pace with change.  AI is uniquely prepared to advise owners on building technology integration, IoT enablement, and its impact to your portfolio and business.

 

Forward-Thinking.  For a Smarter Tomorrow.

Small Drop.  Global Ripple.

AI's global reach is unique for a studio of our size.  Our network is built on decades of successful collaborations with established companies and creative individuals around the world.  From our design studio in New York, we have access to a global network of collaborators which allows AI to service clients locally, in real time.  It's how we will create big impact, right away.

AI Foundation

The practice of architecture alone cannot address all the world’s challenges.  We are establishing the AI Foundation as a non-profit research and charitable organization to extend our mission to provide sustainable development for everyone, everywhere.  Through our practice, research, and activities, the AI Foundation, will:

 

  • Donate a portion of AI profits towards sustainable development
  • Direct R&D efforts towards  underserved communities
  • Bring inclusive design to individuals with special needs
  • Open-source our intellectual property to enable forward-thinking architecture

 

Love, with a pale blue dot.

Architecture for the Pale Blue Dot.

 

 

In 1977, NASA launched the Voyager spacecraft to venture beyond our solar system.  Twelve years later, six billion miles away from home, Voyager pointed its camera back towards Earth and took a selfie. This image came to be known as the Pale Blue Dot.

 

Everything we know, every line ever drawn and every building ever created—exists on this pixel in space.  The blue dot resides in our logo to remind us each day that an architect’s job is more than making pretty pictures.  We believe that architecture should be put to work towards global goals for sustainable development: climate action, clean energy, responsible development, and the creation of sustainable cities and communities.

 

Architecture was once a progressive technology at the leading edge of human innovation.  It’s time we use its power again.

The future is looking up.

 

AI creates forward-thinking architecture without boundaries.  Our mission is to invent new forms and spaces which are responsive to nature and to our humanity.  We are architects who take down walls, who open up cities, and connect our world.
