Pedagogical Explorations of an Open-Source Architecture Paradigm in Emerging Design Technologies

May 18, 2016

Open-Source Architecture is an emerging paradigm advocating peer-to-peer collectivity, inclusiveness, and participatory culture in architectural design. Rich participatory, open-source communities, open-source software, and open-source hardware, created by and designed for the fields of parametric and algorithmic design, visual programming, and physical computing, have emerged with resulting opportunities for change in architectural education. The authors discuss pedagogical approaches that introduce pathways for open-source cultures in architectural design and personal learning networks for professional development.
