Autodesk Introduces Forma, the next evolution of Spacemaker

1 min read

SAN FRANCISCO, May 8, 2023/PRNewswire/– Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today unveiled the first set of capabilities of Autodesk Forma, an industry cloud that will unify workflows across the teams that design, build and operate the built environment. Forma’s initial capabilities target the early-stage planning and design process with automations and AI-powered insights that simplify exploration of design concepts, offload repetitive tasks, and help evaluate environmental qualities surrounding a building site, giving architects time to focus on creative solutions. 

Today’s release marks the first step for the architecture, engineering, construction, and operations industry cloud, as new features and capabilities will be added to Forma on a continual basis.  

With Forma, Autodesk now offers a full end-to-end solution for building design–from early-stage planning through to design in Revit with its vast ecosystem of connected products including Autodesk Construction Cloud. For existing subscribers, Forma is now included in the Autodesk AEC Collection.  

“Forma gives architecture professionals the agility to work iteratively rather than sequentially between planning and detailed design, supercharging what they can accomplish,” said Amy Bunszel, Executive Vice President of Architecture, Engineering and Construction Design Solutions at Autodesk. “From rapidly evaluating a large set of factors–from sun and wind to noise and views– to offloading computational tasks to the cloud and connecting with Revit, Forma unlocks great value for our customers.”  

“We’re excited to bring the next evolution of Spacemaker to market with Autodesk Forma. Existing customers will experience a smooth transition to Forma and will benefit from newly added capabilities,” said Spacemaker co-founder Carl Christensen, who leads Autodesk’s Unified Design group, driving efforts to introduce outcome-based design to the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries in a single platform. “To drive better outcomes, you must harness data as early in the building process as possible. Forma puts data-driven insights into the hands of architects, helping them make decisions while designing to create spaces that work for everyone. Today’s release is just the beginning. We look forward to the future as we continue to build out Forma, reimagining BIM in the cloud to connect data, teams, and workflows across the entire project lifecycle.”
