I believe that architecture will still change more and become something more technological, yet it will be essential that you have hands and human mind behind the projects.

The Thing (Could go either way) says
It is quite obvious that robots/AI will have the ability to carry out architectural and engineering performances, possibly much more effectively than humans since they would be built with such complex thinking systems. Therefore, the chances of replacement seem prominent. However, it should also be noted that co ordination occupies a vast proportion of such jobs. It may be discomforting or disrupting to be communicative with such technology. Hence, people may prefer humans. Conclusively, it could go either way.

Disregard the old comments. Engineering managers are engineers who work with projects, human resources, costs, systems, supply chain etc. The won't be replaced at all by AI. These project management engineers will be always needed for the interdisciplinary skills and team leading and communication to get the job done.

Well design is only 20% of an architects work in terms of hours on design/build project 50% is spent on site resolving issues with contractors, lawyers, accountants, gov. Offices..... Its biggest opportunity is speeding up this process, not design decisions. Also 3d rendering

Ahmed Zaffir (No chance) says
Because architecture requires an artistic touch. Sure base designs can be automated but we're humans and thus we will crave for something beyond such designs and therefore I think human architects will still prosper (I myself am just an aspirant so I'm not spouting facts this is simply my opinion)

By now, Engineers knows the ability of constructing high complex shape buildings using 3D Design software, this itself a start of AI in this field and near future AI will take over the Design shapes of buildings and solutions as well.

I think architect needs creativity, and needs building complex relationships with people. So architect will be not disappeared.

왜그렇게 다 비관적인거지 교체될 가능성 1.7%밖에 안나왔는데. 건축설계사는 기본적으로 창의력이 필요하니까 교체될 가능성 적을거고 사람 사이에 대화도 많이 필요하니까 아직 건축설계사 미래는 창창함

Philippe R. (Small chance) says
When the AI will reach a certain level, the design of its supporting computing architecture will be revisited by the AI itself.
By analyzing the constraints of its own architecture, an AI machine could invent a different architecture and become its own designer in a certain extend.
