Wikihouse at TED London

Designer Alastair Parvin is the Co-creator of Wikihouse, an open-source construction set. He argues in this short presentation, that there is an economics to architecture that we don’t think about, and realizing this can be a game changer.

It is interesting to look at the simple drivers for the Wikihouse project and see some of the constraints set for the project, such as ease of fabrication, material availability and transportability. For more information see the Wikihouse website: http://www.wikihouse.cc/
