Open Source Architecture offers a wholly new vision of how architecture can and must adapt to the realities of the 21st century.\n\nThe 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.\n\nTimely, provocative and passionate, this is a small book packed with big ideas that no architect or designer can afford to ignore. \nContents\n The Promethean Architect: A Modern(ist) Hero\n Bottom-Up Architectures: The Timeless Way of Building\n Why It Did not Work: A Horse Designed by Committee\n Learning From the network: \n New Paradigms for Participation in the Digital World\n Open Source Gets Physical: \n How Digital Collaboration Technologies Became Tangible\n Building Harmonies: Towards a Choral Architect(s)\n Over to you: Go Ahead, Design!
