Strategies and Tools
Consulting & Development
Form Follows You works as an innovation office at the interface between spatial planning and digital processes. We design and develop digital tools, agile processes and optimal strategies with you. For the smooth integration of our solutions into your processes, we advise and support you with our interdisciplinary thinking and working team. Our subject areas range from the development and advice of smart city strategies to digitally supported participation processes and analysis tools to the development of AI-supported planning tools. By using the latest technological aids in planning and communication, we are able to negotiate complex issues with you and those involved in the process in a target-oriented, inclusive and efficient manner.
Specialism and Services
Whenever we have worked out solutions to problems with our customers that are also helpful for other stakeholders, we develop them further into products that are quick and easy to use.
Analysis & Scenarios
Which areas are suitable for redensification? What structural potential do properties offer? What are the properties of land on a macro and micro level? Our digital analyzes and AI-supported scenarios answer these and many other questions.
The effects of planning on the built environment and vice versa are even for experts difficult to grasp. Our digital 3D participation tools convey this information intuitively and interactively. They enable a well-founded exchange of information between all parties involved.
From generatively created type houses for modular housing construction, to interactive planning of the best possible container locations for municipal waste management: Generative planning enables the optimization of many different planning processes.
Explore our Perspectives
The 21st century, known as the Information Age, is overcoming social and physical boundaries that we are familiar with. Digital networking opens up new opportunities for participation and shaping an open society. This is accompanied by increasing complexity. Inadequate communication leads to reduction and the emergence of new local and global borders. It is up to us to respond to this development with good digital participation strategies. Therefore, Form Follows You takes on the task of making the design of the digital and physical world accessible and inclusive.
Our modern society is based on trust in experts who take decisions for others. However, this relationship is often questioned nowadays. Many people do not feel involved in decision-making processes. We believe that these differences can be overcome by appropriate communication methods. Therefore, we offer spatial and digital strategies to make expert knowledge accessible, enrich competencies and allow decision-making at eye level.
Posts and Applications
In our work we move between architecture, urban planning, computer science and communication design. We design tailor-made processes and algorithms to make the physical design of our environment more accessible and understandable.
