Annual KU Institute of Health + Wellness Design Symposium, Monday, Feb. 19

LAWRENCE – Artificial intelligence in architecture and design will be the focus of the annual University of Kansas Health + Wellness Design Symposium on Monday, Feb. 19.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is already changing how buildings are designed. As a tool, AI holds great promise for architects, interior architects, industrial designers, and other practitioners tasked with developing spaces, furnishings, and products optimized for function and utility. In a keynote address co-hosted by the KU Architecture Lecture Series, Phil Bernstein, FAIA – architect, technologist, and associate dean at the Yale School of Architecture – will discuss the present and future of AI in design at the KU Institute of Health + Wellness Design’s 7th annual symposium.
