Artificial intelligence can be used for many things, including showing what home appliances designed by the famed Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi would look like today. Marcus Byrne used Midjourney AI to generate some visual masterpieces, such as the microwave as well as coffee machine that you see above.
Once Midjourney AI generated a rough draft of what Byrne was looking for, he polished off the renders in Photoshop. We can see inspirations in these home appliances from many of Gaudi’s most famous works including Casa Battlo, La Sagrada Famlia, Park Guell, Casa Vicens Gaudi, and the Gaudi House Museum. Unfortunately, it would require approval from the heirs of Antonio Gaudi to make any of these a reality, although if this AI series gains enough popularity, you never know.
