Intriguing Take on Open Source Architecture via TED speaker Alastair Parvin

The TED showcases a look at a very interesting take on architecture– “Architecture for the people, by the people.” Designer Alastair Parvin discusses a simple but provocative idea: what if, instead of architects creating buildings for those who can afford to commission them, regular citizens could design and build their own houses.

The concept, which is at the heart of WikiHouse, is an open source construction kit that means just about anyone can build a house, anywhere. In our practice, we are consistently looking at architecture from all sides. We all can live within our “bubbles”, and TED Talks always help us view our world from a different angle.

Hope you enjoy this TED Talk!
