    Fail fast, as they say in tech. Our mantra for conceptual design is "Turn every stone.” That's why we've used Autodesk Forma as a tool for optimization and design evolution since it was conceived as a startup in Oslo, Norway. Autodesk Forma has played a pivotal role in the development of our 10-step methodology, which aims to increase the sustainability ambition in our projects. It has finally provided the much-needed support for data aggregation and seamless integration with our modeling software. The implementation of Autodesk Forma in our practice, from sketch to detail phase, has helped us create a transparent dialog with our clients and regulatory authorities, based on rich and objective information. It empowers us to find the best architectural solutions tailored to the unique characteristics of each site. In this session, we're excited to share a selection of large-scale urban projects in Norway that have been shaped up in Autodesk Forma and are transforming the urban fabric, leaving a lasting impact for generations to come.
