This is an invitation to everyone interested in the art of building. Some of you may have followed the basic work of FactorEFarm with Compressed Earth Blocks. Now we are going to make this the first case study of a virtual architecture project, start an Open Source Design for a liveable house. We have decided to focus this design process around a single users demand. Inga B. volunteered to lead the process and act as an integrator towards a replicable and liveable house.

This is the process:

  1. Get basic design specifications from the user (Inga)
  2. Document the site, with on-demand virtual walkthrough from Factor e Farm [OSE Team]
  3. Combine user's design specification with available resources and systems requirements of Factor e Farm [Inga and OSE Team]
  4. Collect a team of architects Invitation- [Franz Nahrada]
  5. Evaluations of Team Members' contributions with regard to open source process [Inga and OSE Team]
  • Modular architecture development
    • Modularize components of the house - electric, waste, interior design, structural engineering, HVAC
