Sebastian from Argentina (Small chance) says
Creativity from architects mind couldn't be replaced by AI, But some typical architecture room plans, could be systematized by machine learning on cad programs, like actual libraries of equipment, it could be library of rooms, baths, etc.

Depends on the kind of architecture, the way that the industry itself thinks about what architecture means (an engineering/optimization problem versus art, desire to rapidly customize vs work on the process with other humans) and what clients demand.

computerisation will help and not hinder the architectural profession. Automisation is something that has no place

I think it would be quite hard for robots to take clients ideas for architecture and turn it into a floorplan since there are billions of ways to build a house.
