Ariadna Giménez Uses the Power of AI to Bring Gaudi’s Buildings Into 21st Century

It’s impossible to name an architect who left a bigger mark on Catalan architecture than Antoni Gaudí, and artists are as inspired by him today as they were during his prime. Ariadna Giménez is one of them, and she’s using the power of AI to design buildings that pay homage to Gaudí’s body of work.

Giménez studied advanced architecture at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, but she later decided to mix up her love for architecture with everything from photography to social media. She also has a special place in her heart for 3D visualization and interior design, and all of her talents come together in her creative project Gaudsm.

When deciding to use the power of artificial intelligence to bring Gaudi into the 21st century, Giménez’s main goal was to explore aspects of Catalan Modernism at different scales and translate them into a contemporary minimalist expression of natural forms.

She definitely succeeded, since some of her buildings look like Gaudí himself could’ve designed them if he was still around today. They borrow elements from such iconic buildings as Park Güell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà, and his magnum opus Sagrada Família, while still managing to remain entirely their own.
