Specialism and Services
Form Follows You works as an innovation office at the interface between spatial planning and digital processes. We advise, design and develop digital tools and strategies for the construction and real estate industry. As an interdisciplinary working and thinking team, we offer our clients integral planning processes and consulting services. These range from digitally-supported participation processes and individual building planning to a holistic approach to urban living spaces. We would be happy to advise you on the digitalisation of your planning and participation processes for building projects. By using the latest technological aids in planning and communication, we are able to negotiate complex issues with our clients and those involved in the process in a goal-oriented, inclusive and efficient manner.
Strategies and Tools
Through rule-based design and computer-aided spatial analysis, we accelerate the planning and negotiation process in architecture and urban planning. The field of application spans from the portfolio analysis, via the determination of the potentials, the negotiation of variants in planning processes up to the individual, digitally-supported planning of buildings.
The analysis of urban data sets using digital tools allows us to make a qualitative statement about spatial potential fields in the city for various uses (residential, commercial, social infrastructure, etc.)
Through rule-based design, we can present different planning scenarios in real time and evaluate them with their key figures and dependencies in context:
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.
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. This work needs care and attention. Therefore the discourse is just as important to us as the testing. In this way, we can not only improve design and planning processes, but also support decision-making.
