From WikiHouse to WikiFactory

Presenter

In 2011 we launched WikiHouse - an open source construction system that aims to make it possible for anyone to download, CNC-cut & assemble their own house. WikiHouse is now a growing community for digitally fabbed housing with teams in New Zealand, France, Brazil, the US & the UK. In 2012-13 we followed WikiHouse with OpenDesk - open source design furniture made locally. OpenDesk connects digital designs with a network of fabricators able to make on demand, in response to local orders. We are now building Fabbed.com - a full platform for distributed making of design products. We're looking for designers & makers who share our vision.



FUNDACION PROMEDIO
