Over the next thirty years, the cities of the world will grow by more than 2 billion people. This makes it necessary to build higher, denser and faster than before — while also providing high living quality and sustainable urban environments. Achieving this is a global challenge, recognized by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
The construction industry is struggling to adapt. It is one of the world’s largest industries and yet one of the least digitized. Productivity has been falling since the 1950s. Spacemaker is determined to play a vital role in this industry’s needed transformation. By dramatically improving decision support and collaboration in real estate development, we aim to help build sustainable and better cities to live in.
Spacemaker is a technology company founded on the belief that there is a better way to design cities, and a vision that this needs to happen as the population of the world grows to new highs.
We enable architects, real-estate developers and other stakeholders in the AEC industry to make data-driven decisions from the very moment a project begins. To continuously iterate on designs and to explore the boundaries of what is possible on a site. Put together, we believe that these capabilities will enable the industry to design better cities for more people.
To make this happen we have pulled together an unusual mix of architects, urban planners, software engineers, management consultants, designers, data scientists, and many more, believing that the magic happens when new technological opportunities are combined with deep industry insight.
Our values and shared beliefs are what fuel our journey to designing better cities. Together we have created a Culture Handbook, an honest attempt to describe the culture at Spacemaker and a guide for us as we continue to grow. Get the highlights of the handbook.
Spacemaker is made up of all sorts of people - from data scientists and architects, to sailors, skiers, climbers, software engineers, designers and many more. Below you can meet a few of them!

With this in mind, how can we design parking lots to take up as little space as possible? Spacemaker’s research team takes a look.
How generative design can become a real game-changer for the AEC industry.
