The authors of the article consider what features appear when using artificial intelligence (AI) in the generative design of construction facilities. Every day artificial intelligence becomes more and more important in various fields of human activity. One of the areas of activity in which AI is actively being implemented is construction, namely digital (BIM) and generative (GD) building design. These areas of design include the development of design solutions for an object using computer algorithms and mathematical models. The article examines the positive aspects of implementing AI in generative design, compared to traditional design methods. The use of AI in generative design can improve the quality of produced design documentation by reducing the number of unintentional mechanical and technical errors, providing designers with a more extensive amount of analytical data. The authors focus on the main AI methods that are involved in GD, as well as the problems and limitations that arise when using AI in design.
