Curious to investigate the potential of computational infrastructure in expanding access to design resources, I co-founded Open House, a research and design group creating an open-source building system to democratize space-making.
The core of the Open House system is an online repository
of standardized, versatile building modules that anyone can access and contribute to. Easy to fabricate, transport, and assemble, the modules – called Boxels – are designed to be built by anyone, regardless of construction experience.
In addition to co-designing and prototyping the Boxel module, I developed the Boxel Repository and coded open-house.org
. The project was exhibited at Haverford’s Maker Arts Space and the Cambridge Innovation Center in Philadelphia.
