“We’re building a city the size of Paris each week, so every non-optimal project that’s built today is a missed opportunity for changing the world” –– this is one of the reasons why Carl Christensen founded an AI-driven architectural design startup, Spacemaker. The company raised over $30 million, was declared a startup of the year in Norway and was acquired for $240 million in just 4 years.

On this episode of the Startup Exits Podcast, we chat with Carl about:

• What's wrong with how cities are built?

• What's the result of non-optimal urban planning?

• How's urban planning done today?

• Startup ecosystem in Norway

• Where else can AI-driven design be valuable?

• Will AI replace architects?
