Through the lens of architecture and built environtment

Open source cooperative platform and Open house archive are the collaborative, open-source platform bringing together public citizens to be aware of the relationship between democracy and built environment and its repercussions for citizenship,architectural practice and policy making.

Based on the literature reviews, experts and stakeholders interviews, two conceptual approaches (topdown)and (bottom-up) for design interventions were developed: Open Source participatory design, expand the whole lifespan of the built environment. Using two insights, a series of ideas were conceptualised and analysed for the systemic scope and implications. Open Source Cooperative Platform as a toolkit and Open House Archive as a concept with levels of systemic impact represent the two directions of implementation.
