The House You Download To Your Desktop

Posted by TierTime on 9. May 2012

There is a video of the WikiHouse going up at HackedLab, Milan Design Week. Although the project is open source, the video would not embed here on Forbes, so sorry but you’ll have to lick the link . I came across WikiHouse on Dezeen.

The video doesn’t take you all the way to house completion – and I suspect that’s because the components were swelling in the humid atmosphere of the HackedLab. Anyway – there’s enough here to show the way. Open source design and maker projects are gaining real traction in Europe as the scale of the economic crisis makes itself ever more obvious.

As I said in an earlier piece, this is about transforming economies not about choosing between different styles of intervention.
