An Incomplete List of Complete WikiHouse Projects
Thanks to Angela Cois @RoominoHQ and @FFoundersSlack who inspired this list.
The WikiHouse project has been finding it’s way all around the globe (literally) - I first found out about the project in New Zealand before beginning to work with the WikiHouse Foundation in London as a Community Host, amongst other things. Over the last few years we have hosted a digital commons library of projects hosted on Google Drive. It was never the ideal platform (especially for an Open Source project) but it served an immediate need that surfaced when the first set of files were shared. You’ve gotta start somewhere, right?
As it continues to mature, the WikiHouse Foundation has started some exciting work on the next phase of the project; creating the digital infrastructure to support the ever developing, open source hardware system and it’s procurement, by anyone (with an internet connection).
In the meantime, I wanted to offer a really simple directory that would list projects that have been built around the world. Below is a template of how each project will be laid out. Each listing will have hyperlinks that lead you to the projects home. If you want your project listed, please DM me on twitter with the details shown in the template below. If any information below is incorrect please also just DM me.
The below list will eventually be added to a map and listed on our website.
