Manas Bhatia asked AI to design cities of the future

“AI x Future Cities” is a conceptual project by Bhatia that imagines buildings with curved forms inspired by shapes found in nature. Midjourney was the AI tool used and generated these images based on written prompts.

Text descriptions – featuring phrases like “futuristic towers,” “utopian technology,” “symbiotic,” and “bioluminescent material” – Midjourney then yielded a series of digital images that Bhatia further tweaked by honing the prompts.

Bhatia said it can take up to 20 minutes to make each of the surreal artworks and he refined his descriptions almost 100 times per project, then cleaned up the images using Photoshop.
