AI:Lab: Artificial Intelligence in Low Carbon Building - AHRC/EPSRC IAA Funded Research

Project: Research


The AI:Lab asks: how can processes of Artificial Intelligence (AI) target the reduction of carbon expenditure in the design and construction of buildings, and what role do architects, engineers, our students and the public have in the process of de-carbonisation using new tools of AI?

The built environment has a vital role to play in responding to the climate emergency - addressing upfront carbon is a critical and urgent focus. Buildings are currently responsible for 39% of global energy related carbon emissions: 28% from operational emissions with the remaining 11% from embodied carbon in materials and construction.

Working with Grimshaw Architects, and with a focus on Morecambe Bay, our key objective is to establish the Ai:Lab as a vehicle to recognise the cross-disciplinary demands and opportunities of AI, to capture these at an early stage, and produce impactful research in communities and across the construction sector.
