The world of architecture is an ever-evolving and exciting field where creativity and innovation know no bounds. As designers and artists, we are constantly looking for inspiration and pushing the limits of our imagination.
One incredibly effective way to fire up your creativity is to use hints (Some call it a prompt, some call it a text, some call it a hint, in fact, it's what we write into a text string so that Midjourney will generate a picture for us) by architecture. These tips encourage you to explore new combinations of styles, architects, and photography techniques, ultimately leading to unique and mesmerizing design concepts.
In this article, we will delve into the art of creating the perfect architectural clue and learn how mixing different elements can lead to impressive designs.
How to build the Midjourney architecture
Start with the architectural style:
Start by choosing an architectural style that suits you or the project you are working on. This will serve as the basis for your Midjourney prompt, setting the tone and character of your design. Explore a variety of architectural styles, from classic Gothic and Romanesque to more modern Art Deco and Brutalism, to find the one that best suits your vision.
For the purposes of this demo, I'll be using an architectural style that will always make you smile, and by that I mean, of course: Brutalism!
Brutalism is an architectural design style that involves the use of solid cement blocks and forms with few windows. A popular architectural style for friendly sadists everywhere!

Define the view (external or internal):
Decide if you want to focus on the outside or the inside of the building. Each offers its own unique set of challenges and opportunities for creative expression. Exteriors often emphasize the building's overall form, façade, and connection to its surroundings, while interiors focus on spatial organization, functionality, and the experience of space.
Shows the appearance of the structure and its relationship with the environment.

Define the render type:
Choose the right rendering technique to bring your concept to life. There are several rendering types, each with its own unique advantages and characteristics.
3D computer visualization
This method uses computer-generated images to create photorealistic renderings of architectural designs. It provides a high level of detail and precision, making it ideal for demonstrating complex structures and materials.

With this approach, you can capture the essence of the design through the camera lens while focusing on composition, lighting, and perspective. This is a great method for showcasing real projects and their relationship to the environment.

A hand-drawn or digital sketch is ideal for quickly conveying an initial design concept. This method emphasizes the creative process and allows you to quickly iterate and refine ideas.

Blueprints are technical drawings that display the architectural plans of a building, including floor plans, elevations, and sections. This type of rendering is critical in conveying the functional and structural aspects of a project to builders and engineers.

This type of visualization gives a bird's eye view of the project, allowing you to see how the design interacts with the environment and overall site layout.

A sectional visualization is a sectional view of a building showing relationships between different spaces, levels, and structural elements.

Floor plans are essential to understanding the spatial organization, movement, and overall layout of a project. They provide a top-down view of each level of a building, showing walls, doors, windows, and other architectural features.

Add any architect-specific styles:
Dive deeper into the world of architecture by incorporating the styles of famous architects into your invitation. This will not only challenge your creativity but also introduce you to new approaches and design philosophies. Study the work of famous architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, and Zaha Hadid to understand their design principles and stylistic features.
Le Corbusier style

Add any photo styles of specific architecture photographers:
Finally, consider incorporating photography styles from well-known architectural photographers into your invitation. This will allow you to explore the aesthetic side of architecture and learn how different photographers approach their work.

Experiment by mixing different architectural styles.
Combining different architectural styles, eras, environments, references, architects and photographers can lead to truly unique design concepts. By mixing these elements, you challenge yourself to think outside the box and create a unique design language that sets your work apart from others. Don't be afraid to mix traditional styles with modern touches or experiment with unusual combinations - you never know what hidden gems you might discover along the way.

Add setting or environment
The most important aspect of any architectural project is its relationship to the environment or setting. Whether it's a bustling cityscape, a serene rural village, or a pristine natural setting, the context in which your project is located plays an important role in shaping its form, function, and aesthetics.
When creating an architecture hint, consider adding a specific setting or environment to explore how your design concept can adapt and respond to the unique challenges and opportunities presented by its location. By doing so, you will not only create a more appropriate design, but you will also push your creative boundaries by focusing on the interaction between the constructed form and the surrounding world.

Now that you have a deeper understanding of what goes into creating an effective architecture tip, you're ready to embark on your own creative journey. If you learn this little stuff, all you have to do is change architectural styles and the AI will give you what you want. As an example, replace Brutalism (Brutalist architecture) with Modern (Modernist architecture)
