Open Architecture


Cities: (as) an Open Dialogue

Open Architecture


Cities: (as) an Open Dialogue
People start to gather around common interests such as imagining their city.

Architecture plays a major role on the way cities grow. Once the demand and supply are tightly coupled, like in a dance, both have to find their balance. This is possible through an open dialogue that aligns everyone's expectations and reality so there's a collective effort to a sustainable future.

Collaborative participation on scalable and replicable urban solutions is becoming easier as means of electronic social sharing become more pervasive, leveraged on open source and open data platforms.

Big, blind building projects will be condemned as people become more informed and aware of their influence on the evolving environment. When citizens have an active role about their city's development, architects will have to be more aware about their concerns and trends.

The key of our idea is to relate interests and expectations on a constructive and more integrative way. Our goal is to bring these best practices into discussion to the Future Architecture Platform.


Evolution: we are here.
