Living Street and Resilience in Cities
With the rapid growth of urban populations, people’s living spaces have become more constrained, drawing attention to issues related to human habitats. Redesigning streets can not only improve the urban environmental quality and enrich residents’ activities on the streets but also drive the benign development of surrounding areas. Among them, “living streets” represent the largest proportion of urban streets and therefore hold significant importance regarding their potential for transformation, making them a subject of significant research. Building upon the overall approach found in worldwide street design guidelines, which often classify streets based on adjacent land uses or functional characteristics. Enhancing the resilience of living streets enables flexible adaptation to residents’ multifaceted needs at the micro-level resident activity spaces. It also contributes to resilience realization at the macro-level of the urban system.

Artificial Intelligence for Master-Quality Architectural Designs Generation
The outstanding buildings designed by master architects are the common wealth of mankind. They reflect their design skills and concepts and are not possessed by ordinary architectural designers. Compared with traditional methods that rely on a lot of mental labor for innovative design and drawing, artificial intelligence (AI) methods have greatly improved the creativity and efficiency of the design process. It overcomes the difficulty in specifying styles for generating high-quality designs in traditional diffusion models.

In recent years, architectural interactions have become the center of many important reflections. However, there is little agreement on the subject. Some authors consider architecture to be about its relations with human and nonhuman agents. Others consider that buildings have an autonomous presence, which transcends all their interactions. These approaches are generally seen as incompatible. Although at the heart of the debate is the role of relations in architecture, their nature is not addressed. A closer look at architectural relations reveals that autonomy and relationality are not opposing, but complementary, aspects.
