Who we are?
“… a direction seems clear: to design environments not by the initial specification of real surfaces but by specification of the desired (potential) experience in space…”
M. Benedikt, 1979
DecodingSpaces GbR is german based company specialized on the consulting, training, research and development in field of computationally aided architectural and urban design. Our partners and clients are architects, urban planners, real estate developers, municipalities, and universities looking for science-based solutions to improve the quality of designs and increase the efficiency of their workflow.
We are providing a rich set of tools and solutions for evaluating design proposals on different scales like buildings, urban quarters and cities as well as for various domains such as movement, land-use, orientation and way finding and energy performance. Furthermore we offer support in the generation, implementation and optimization of design concepts. As an additional service we are developing software for client-specific problems.
Our close contacts and collaborations with researchers at several universities (ETH-Zurich, Bauhaus-University Weimar, Future Cities Lab in Singapore) ensures the integration of the latest findings into our services and products.
Our goal is to assist you evaluating and optimizing design proposals for complex spatial environments based on scientifically proven methods.
