Images show Edinburgh Castle reimagined by AI – here is how it could look if designed by famous architects

Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Scotland’s capital – but how could it look if it had been designed by someone else?

Well, the team at Selco Builders Warehouse have used an AI art tool called Midjourney to reimagine the building in three different contemporary architectural styles inspired by Antoni Gaudi, Zaha Hadid, and Renzo Piano.

They’ve also done this for other UK landmarks including Glasgow Cathedral, the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool, Battersea Power Station in London, York Minster and Windsor Castle.

Famous architects Gaudi, Hadid, and Piano have each designed countless famed buildings across the globe – among others, Gaudi designed the renowned Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Hadid the London Aquatics Centre used in the 2012 Olympics, and Piano is the architect behind the Shard in London.  

Impressive portfolios are claimed by all three – but what if we apply their architectural styles to Edinburgh Castle?
