Marcel Breuer was the famous architect who designed two large facilities for IBM: one in France and the other here in Boca Raton, presently called BRIC. He was an influential figure in modern architecture and a key figure in the Bauhaus movement.
His designs emphasized the integration of materials, forms, and functions to create a new aesthetic. He was a pioneer in the use of industrial materials for furniture, such as tubular steel, aluminium, and plywood. He was also influential in the development of modernist architecture with his use of open plan layouts, his inventive use of materials and his iconic furniture designs are still popular today.
Breuer‘s work also had a significant impact on the development of Brutalism, a style which focused on the use of raw materials and forms which were simple, yet suggestive of strength and power. Breuer‘s modernist style played a key role in the development of architectural history. His influence can still be seen in many contemporary buildings around South Florida.
Here we’ve asked artificial intelligence to imagine what condos would look like in Boca Raton if Marcel Breuer continued to design structures for people to live and work in.
Some people are concerned about the normalization of the public towards looking at AI images. The idea is that people will be more easily deceived by AI if trained to believe AI images are real. I share that concern.
In the case of these last four articles I published about artificial intelligence visions of the future of Boca Raton, I disclaimed clearly that all the images are AI generated, that they are not images of structures real or planned by anyone.
Will other publishers be as careful with the content they serve to you? This is the question for you as you face tomorrow’s content: is it real or just cleverly imagined, cleverly made to appear almost indistinguishable from real to untrained eyes. Train your eyes – that’s all I can tell you, or what’s fake may become very real to you.
Content made by robots, and the population of trans-human robots pretending to be real humans, even pretending to be you, is growing. Being aware of this phenomenon, being able to tell when and why artificial intelligence is interfacing with you, isn’t some requirement for the future: it’s here for YOU now. Abre los ojos Boca Raton.
A new ethic for being honest, being genuine, being real will surely emerge as a response, right?
Would you like to live in, work in, or look at these buildings every day? Would you rather live in a building that’s dreary alongside genuine, honest, ethical people or would you prefer to live in an oceanside mansion, next door to people who you can’t trust and who know better than to trust you? I’m not saying that it’s an either/or decision in real life, but if you had to pick from this hypothetical extreme, what would you choose?
What makes a town, its buildings, its codes, or its people? You’re my neighbor, so the “home” we make for ourselves is up to us. When you close your eyes and prompt yourself to envision “Boca” what do you see? Do you see the beaches, the buildings, the stores, the roads, the traffic or do you see the people? What makes this home for you?
Would these buildings add to the charm and style of Boca Raton or would they take away from it, in your mind? Let your opinions be known. Believe it or not: one small comment from could have an enormous impact on the future for all of us.
This is the last of a series of 4 articles about AI generated architectural designs for Boca Raton’s future. The other three are:
