If you are not familiar with my collection of artist styles in Midjourney you should check out the post that explorers thousands of artists and their styles using Midjourney.

In this post I focus on 10 very famous architects who are well known for their work. So I use their name in the prompt of Midjourney to see the outcome.

The prompt I’m using is: futuristic house on distant planet, house designed by <ARCHITECT>, editorial photo, noon mood, featured in national geographic, close up shot, 32k, cinematic composition, professional color grading, film grain, atmosphere, wondrous, cinematic glamour shot –ar 3:2

Same prompt no architect

This prompt is referenced from the Prompts collection page.

Each of the architects have a distinctive style which is interpreted by Midjourney’s AI model (v5.2 was used) which when evoked by using the architect’s name in the prompt will add styling and design based on that specific architect.

Why would I do this well as part of your creative process if you are creating a futuristic scene using Midjourney (or any other AI model), by using One or more of these architects name you can start have stylised designs appear in your final image that are influences by these people.
