My guest in this episode is Anycie Barakat from Archistar, a big data and AI platform that is a game changer for property development, design and even planning. Now Anycie has a master’s in architecture and is the lead computational designer at Archistar, a business that was founded by her brother, Dr. Ben Coorey.
And in this interview, we talk about the extraordinary power of generative design, how it’s being turbocharged by aggregated data sets across council planning laws and extended property data sets. And the extraordinarily exciting opportunities that it’s opening up, not only on how to save significant costs in developing property, but coming up with better design outcomes that are more efficient, more creative and better for us to live and work in.
