|About||Form Follows You is a team of three young architects - Martin Dennemark, Benedikt Wannemacher and Max Rudolph - working on user-generated architecture through digital collaboration and representation.|
Our current world seems to be painted black and white. Either you are for globalisation or localness, for migration or borders, for Brexit or EU, for Trump or Clinton. Even the architectural discourse is shaped this way. On the one side construction- and form-driven digitisation and a proclamation of a parametric style. On the other side the traditional, populistic or even nostalgic design of architecture. Either way many people feel left behind by the decision-making leading to a crisis of representation.
Form Follows You, however, places the people back in the center! We don't just see either-or. When people can connect globally and decide locally, we see more than black and white. New technologies can allow us to build a people-driven, user-generated architecture. While analogue participation reaches its limits because of increasing complexity, digital tools can enhance the field of possibilities and make even non-experts to decision-makers.
We met 2010 as young students at the msa | münster school of architecture and slowly but surely discovered the digital world of architecture. For our master studies we split up to specialise each in our own fields. Benedikt went to the University Stuttgart to explore digital construction, Max arrived at TU Berlin to become a real architect and Martin explored participatory processes at TU Delft. Now we reunited to push the idea of Form Follows You.
