Digital Participation

The 21st century transcends familiar social and physical boundaries. Digital networking opens up new opportunities for participation and shaping an open society. This is accompanied by increasing complexity. If this complexity is not adequately communicated, it will lead to a reduction and the emergence of new local and global borders. It is up to us to respond to this development with good strategies of digital participation. Form Follows You therefore takes on the task of making the design of the digital and physical world accessible and inclusive.


Spatial Strategies

Our modern society is based on trust in experts who make decisions for others. However, this relationship is often questioned these days and many people do not feel involved in decision-making processes. We believe that this difference 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.


Contextual Analysis

The interconnection of different digital tools with urban data sets allows a qualitative analysis of spatial context:

  • Contextual data
  • View- and Illuminationqualities
  • Pathways & Connections
  • Noise Imissions

Scenario Negotiation

Various planning scenarios can be displayed in real time and in context with their key figures and dependencies:

  • Accessible Visualisations
  • Interactive Tools
  • Comparison of Variants
  • Realtime Scenario-Generation

Digital Planning

The digital 3D building model provides precise geometries to think through all details in the design and to exclude sources of error at an early stage. 

  • Digital Process Chain
  • Building Information Modelling
  • Informed Production Methods
  • Modular Building Data


Our Contributions

In unserer Arbeit bewegen wir uns zwischen Architektur, Stadtplanung, Informatik und  Kommunikationsdesign. Wir entwerfen maßgeschneiderte Prozesse und Algorithmen, um die physische Gestaltung unserer Umwelt zugänglicher und verständlicher zu gestalten. Diese Arbeit benötigt Sorgfalt und Aufmerksamkeit. Daher ist uns der Diskurs ebenso wichtig, wie die Erprobung. Auf diese Weise können wir nicht nur Design- und Planungsprozesse verbessern, sondern auch inklusive Entscheidungsfindung unterstützen.


Our team

Martin Dennemark

Co-Founder & Partner

In addition to Form Follows You, Martin has been part of the Integrated Infrastructure research project at Bauhaus University Weimar and EiABC since the end of 2016. The project focuses on digital planning strategies for growing cities in Ethiopia. He also collaborates with #donotsettle, an architecture vlogging project.

Max Rudolph

Co-Founder & Partner

Next to Form Follows You, Max has been researching and teaching at the Einstein Center Digital Future Berlin since October 2017 as a research assistant on the topic of urban resilience and digitization. Prior to this, he gained experience at the prestigious Sauerbruch Hutton architectural office and participated in the IBA Heidelberg (International Building Exhibition).

Benedikt Wannemacher

Co-Founder & Partner

Besides Form Follows You, Benedikt has been a research assistant at the Chair of Digital and Experimental Design and Construction at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Kassel since December 2017. In his academic career he studied in the renowned ITECH Master Program and worked for the well-known architecture firm Gerkan Marg & Partner (gmp) in Berlin.
