WORKSHOPS | wikihouse

WORKSHOP | brief

The open design concept of Wiki House allows us to customise, fabricate and assemble a full scale house with only a few people in only a few days. In collaboration with the AA school we will assemble and demonstrate the design and production process of a locally manufactured version of the Wiki House V3.3.  Conceived in the UK, adapted in New Zealand and fabricated in Barcelona.

WORKSHOP | requirements

No software is required, but if participants wish to work with their own designs we can help to install open source software.  A computer and monitor will be setup in the Wiki House.
