Abuse of Artificial Intelligence, Pt. 1: What if Frank Lloyd Wright designed Wrigley Field? – Summary of the ballpark

There is much debate about future impacts Artificial intelligence (AI), but one positive point is that this technology can bring to life attractive alternatives. Here, we ran some interesting scenarios through an AI generator about it Ball parks and distinctive architects: what if Frank Lloyd Wright Designed Wrigley Field?

We have amazing and visionary architects and designers working in the sports industry these days. It has since become a specialized field Zachary Taylor Davis He first presented the plans for the White Sox Park – later Comiskey Park – to Charlie Comiskey and followed plans for it. Wigman Park (Next Wrigley Field) And Wrigley Square Los Angeles. While he did a lot of work on government buildings and packing plants, these days he’s best known as the industry’s first great architect/designer, the first of many in baseball, names that include Joe Spear, Earl Santee, and Janet Marie Smith. .

And some prominent architects and designers have tackled ballpark projects: Inc Cass Gilbertwho designed the iconic Woolworth Tower in New York City, once a parking lot for St. Paul Synth; Robert AM Stern Worked on the 1996 renovation Angel Stadium; Edward Dural stone It contributed to the famous roof line – 96 “Crown of Arches” – and other elements Busch Stadium II; And both Norman Bell Geddes And R. Buckminster Fuller He shot one Brooklyn Dodgers Dome Ball Park.

However, there is a level of global architect whose body of work transcends a genre and changes the entire world of architecture. Today they may be called Starch makers; In the past they were just famous architects. Zachary Taylor Davis was a Chicago architect at a time when Chicago architecture was changing the world. He served as a student in this university during his formative years Dreamy Louis SullivanDubbed the city’s “Father of Skyscrapers,” his motto—”form follows function”—guided a generation of architects through the birth of modernism.

Ending Sullivan’s apprenticeship with Davis joining the firm of Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan: Frank Lloyd Wright, who studied Sullivan’s lessons and created what he called organic architecture and the Prairie School. Wright is widely regarded as America’s greatest architect. He was certainly the first famous architect in popular culture. His designs are distinctive, from lovely Usonian homes to grand mansions like Fallingwater to bold urban plans like Broadacre City to entire college campuses like Florida Southern. It’s hard to ignore the distinctive style and feel of the Frank Lloyd Wright building. He never designed a sports center. Although his archive contains an unrealistic rendering of the new Belmont Park stand dated 1956..

With this in mind, enter artificial intelligence.

We used Microsoft Bing Image Creator designed by DALLE 3 ChatGPT AI engine – to generate images of what Wrigley Field would look like if designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the first of our “what-of” series of what iconic ballparks would look like if designed by the star architects of this piece will be. (We already know what a starch maker would design today: remember, Bjarke Ingels Group–BIG–did the conceptual designs for the Oakland A’s proposed Howard Terminal waterfront ballpark..) Wright started his career in Chicago, so it’s not a long shot.

Here are the renderings produced by Bing:

These renderings appear to capture the original feel of Wrigley Field and include some of Wright’s standard design elements.

These renderings should not be taken literally, and other AI tools offer different views of a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Wrigley Field. (Actually: one simulation yielded a ballpark nearly twice the size of Wrigley Field, reminiscent of the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.) But still, these are cool, and we’re excited to launch the set. Next: Paul Rudolph in Texas.
