Architecture For Humanity Goes Open Source.

Bruce Nussbaum

An intriguing experiment in open source creativity is under way with the launch yesterday at the TED conference of the Open Architecture Network by the Architecture for Humanity, founded by Cameron Sinclair. Open Source Architecture is new but given the hundreds of thousands of architects around the world, has enormous potential for both profit and non-profit organizations. This is a beta launch but already there is lots of interest.

For all you young architects slaving away doing detail work on major projects at big firms run by egomanical starachitects, here is a big opportunity to do something meaningful. Architecture for Humanity does good work.

You can hear Cameron Sinclair on TEDTalks.
