More flexibility, less material, simpler engineering, better airtightness and a dramatically improved workflow from manufacturing to assembly. Blackbird is the most advanced WikiHouse building system yet. Currently in beta.
Blackbird R&D is being led by OSL in collaboration with 00, Momentum Engineering, Peter Brett Associates, 4C Engineering and others. Although we always seek to publish files as early as possible under a clear disclaimer of warranty, because Blackbird contains some kinds of joint that are entirely new, we are testing the system in early pilot projects before publishing the files.
If you are a structural engineer or have access to structural testing facilities to help accelerate this work, please do join the #Blackbird channel in the WikiHouse Community Slack group.
If you’ve already joined, but can’t see the Blackbird channel, you can request an invitation here.
