Library Shelf Location 10.RATT
Publication Date 2015

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.
