Open Source Architecture offers a wholly new vision of how architecture can and must adapt to the realities of the 21st century.
The authors call for a shift from the ego-fuelled grand visions of ‘starchitects’ and their Modernist forebears, to a networked, collaborative, inclusive model that draws inspiration from phenomena such as crowd-sourcing, open access and mass customization.
Timely, provocative and passionate, this is a small book packed with big ideas that no architect or designer can afford to ignore.
'This is a provocative, open manifesto calling for a major paradigmatic shift in the practice of architecture, to a collaborative, inclusive model using 21st-century trends'
