Last year, Cameron Sinclair of Architecture for Humanity  won the prestigious TED Prize , and was granted a world-changing “wish.” His wish was the Open Architecture Network , 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  and Hot Studio , the Network  is now up and running (debuted at the 2007 TED Conference  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  for yourself, and stay tuned Monday for a full in-depth interview with Cameron Sinclair about OAN  and its development. And from all of us at Inhabitat, congrats to Cameron, Architecture for Humanity , TED , and all other supporters and contributors to a truly ground-breaking achievement.
