The ultimate creative toolset for architects 

Adopted by millions of professionals worldwide, the award-winning Affinity software suite is the total creative solution for architects looking to streamline the design process and produce everything from stunning visualisations and digital renderings to physical reports and impressive portfolios.

The rise of AI: A threat or opportunity for architects?

The rise of generative artificial intelligence (AI) – particularly ChatGPT, Dall-E and Midjourney – is already disrupting every industry, including architecture. But is AI a threat to skilled professionals who’ve spent decades honing their craft, or an opportunity to work more effectively?

This question is the starting point for our exclusive e-guide, which takes an in-depth look at the role AI can play in the architectural practice of the future. Including insights from industry experts and academics, we assess the value – and potential risks – this controversial technology brings.

Switching to Affinity

UK-based architectural firm SimpsonHaugh was one of the first businesses to fully transition from Adobe to Affinity. Listen to what the practice’s Information Management Partner, Dave Moyes, has to say about making the switch.
