Join the Community
WikiHouse is not a single, finished product, but an open community project, the aim of which is to make it possible for anyone to design for anyone else. There is no fixed design 'team' or 'studio', but a steadily growing community of designers from all disciplines who share in common the belief that developing freely available house design solutions which are affordable, sustainable, and adaptive to differing needs is a worthwhile aim.
Anyone who is interested in, or already working on, problems around this area is invited to become a collaborator on WikiHouse, regardless of what background they approach it from. There is already a growing community of followers, supporters, contributors, and developers who are working to improve on this early experiment.
The WikiHouse community recently switched over to Google Groups.
The main group is for general discussions and usage, i.e.: to
share ideas and ask for advice about using WikiHouse and the
WikiHouse project in general. Then there are two specialist groups:
one for designers and makers who are actively designing WikiHouses
and one for software / web developers working on the platform,
plugins and file format integration.
