Open Architecture Network, Architecture for Humanity, Cameron Sinclair, Humanitarian Design, Design Like You Give A Damn [1]

Last year, Cameron Sinclair of Architecture for Humanity [2] won the prestigious TED Prize [3], and was granted a world-changing “wish.” His wish was the Open Architecture Network [4], a completely open-source website with a simple mission: “to generate design opportunities that will improve living standards for all.” And now, with the help of SUN Microsystems [5] and Hot Studio [6], the Network [4] is now up and running (debuted at the 2007 TED Conference [7] yesterday), providing a platform in which anyone, anywhere in the world, can view, post, adapt, and comment on humanitarian, sustainable, replicable, and scalable design solutions. Check out the Open Architecture Network [4] for yourself, and stay tuned Monday for a full in-depth interview with Cameron Sinclair about OAN [4] and its development. And from all of us at Inhabitat, congrats to Cameron, Architecture for Humanity [2], TED [8], and all other supporters and contributors to a truly ground-breaking achievement.
